    Our Good Lord has always used the unlikeliest of people to bring glory to Himself. Jesus Christ himself was mocked by the haters in his day because of who he hung out with and what they looked like.

    The past few years have seen a slow deterioration of my faith—to the point where I fear it’s mostly dead. But, to quote Miracle Max, there’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.
