an excerpt.

I promise, this is the last one from The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning. I finished the book, finally. I am the slowest reader on earth.

In the end everything will be all right, nothing can harm you permanently; no loss is lasting, no defeat more than transitory, no disappointment is conclusive. Suffering, failure, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement and death will be part of your journey, but the kingdom of God will conquer all these horrors. No evil can resist grace forever.

On another note – to my very dear friend whose heart is hurting. I know the pain in your heart and emptiness in the pit of your stomach feels like it’s never-ending; but one day, it will be ok and you’ll be stronger. I wish I were there with you to bake you a heart-shaped cookie. Please trust me, this too shall pass.
