He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou find refuge: His truth is a shield and buckler
Psalms 91:4

Be it ours,when we cannot see the face of God, to trust under the shadow of His wings. C.H. Spugeon

Long & Short on Pain

As Christians we would like immunity from pain and suffering where in reality we have only received impunity. The Christian life is not one which guarantees success or wealth or health, it's guarantee lies with the One Who's satisfaction began and ended with a relationship with you. It is not reprisal or punishment which underwrites life's pain, it is the random action of others and the choices of ours which determine life's consequences.

The Christian is not adverse from experiencing anything in life which is not common to all men.
