(March 31, 2015)
I loved the imagery of a sifting where not a grain of corn would hit the ground. We are going to be sifted (we are being sifted right now), and that will be a painful and difficult process. But I take a great deal of confidence from the fact that not a single soul that chooses to be with the Lord will ultimately be lost – if we are lost, it is because we choose to be lost.
No matter how difficult our times will be (and they feel difficult to me, often enough), I can trust that the Lord will hold me to Him so long as I am willing (He will not let me fail to the ground). I have seen Him do this often enough that I no longer doubt it from Him.
