Such times bring me to contemplate my spirit, though, as I consider the possibilities of outcome. I think it's prudent to consider the possibilities so as not to be unduly shaken if what is possible does come to pass. That's not to say that I dwell pessimistically on the possibilities, but rather to consider how I might respond and glorify God in them. His grace is always sufficient, and I need and want to draw upon it.
Isn't the day always sweeter when the dread of it has passed?
