I've been mining through stacks of old journals lately. Unpolished thoughts about life with God. Sometimes these thoughts weave into songs or the words in between the songs or just move my thoughts upward.
Here's one on 1 Peter 1:6-8
"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by
various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire, may be found to the praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen, you love."
