“God knows how to lift us up, out of our predicaments. He knows how to fix our broken worlds: broken hearts, broken hopes, broken homes, broken health, and broken lives. There is not a problem that Christ cannot fix. He brings beauty out of ugly situations. New growth out of dead ashes. Sweet-smelling life out of foul-smelling rottenness. . . . If you’re discouraged, I encourage you ‘Don’t give up!’… Do not succumb to the crushing weight of failure over your life. If there’s anyone that can help you handle failure well, God can. He did for me. He can do the same for you as well. ”—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim’s Six More Chances, pp. 166, 179; www.TheWoundedEagleBooks.com.
