A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.–Proverbs 16:9 KJV
In the reactionary battle, it is easy to lose hope, when we see in the world around us more and more movement away from the direction we hold to be good, beautiful, and true.
But let us never despair. It is not our job to win the battle. It is our job to take up our swords and go to the battle, and to fight our hardest in our particular corner of the fight. The outcome belongs to God.
