A better miracle

Our own diminishments, in God’s sovereign ordering of all things for His glory and our good, are not only the prerequisites to our own joy, but may also be the means of enriching the lives of others. . .Not the miracle of an instant change of feelings, but the miracle of life out of death. . .Love, it seems, creates good- by drawing good out of any situation through suffering.  The suffering itself thereby becomes a pathway to holiness. (Elisabeth Elliot, the Path of Loneliness, pp.172-173)
