for the better

      As long as you can handle things on your own, part of you would probably rather not turn toward God. When troubles come, that usually changes for the better.

“[W]e are . . . half turned toward You, half rather not. . . .” Walter Brueggemann

“The troubles of my heart are enlarged. . . . My eyes are continually turned toward the Lord.” Psalm 25:17; 15
