When sailing in a furious storm, I have two choices.
"I can escape below into skepticism and intellectualism, hanging on for dear life.
Or, with radical amazement, I can stay on deck and boldly stand in surrendered faith to the truth of my belovedness, caught up in the reckless raging fury that they call the love of God.
And learn to pray." --Brennan Manning
I must learn to pray like I'm surviving a storm, not taking a test.
