My Utmost For His Highest : ""Out Of The Wreck I Rise""

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Romans 8:35

God does not keep a man immune from trouble; He says - "I will be

when the odds are all against God's character. Logic is silenced in
the face of every one of these things. Only one thing can account for
it - the love of God in Christ Jesus. "Out of the wreck I rise" every
