And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

– Romans 8:28

Do you really believe that everything that’s happened to you in the last month happened for your ultimate benefit? Goodness. If you don’t believe that, how can you go on?

Self-control.

Galatians 5:22-23, self-control is the last fruit of the Spirit.

Self-control is often thought of as self-restriction or self-paralysis. But self-control is like riding a bike. Those who have no control over a bike swiftly fall over; they can’t take themselves where they want to go.

But those who can control their bike: they are truly free.

Lyrics:

Crawling through this maze

Search for her always

All throughout this place

Candles, lights, they blaze

——-

Their enchanting flames

Engulf her with praise

That I can’t see her face

That I don’t know her name

———

Oh where’s my love?

Where’s the one?

Don’t let the scenery and poetry and music of your relationship with God shrivel up and die. You have capacities for joy that you can scarcely imagine. They were made for the enjoyment of God. He can awaken them no matter how long they have lain asleep.

John Piper, Desiring God (1986)
