Sorrows—An Aspect of Reality in the Life of Faith

          I was thinking about the verse from the Psalms that says, “Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” (Psalm 42:7)  It is all too easy for us to dwell on the surface of things. Even as believers, we can miss so much […]
