"Woman, you are set free from your ailment."

One of my favorite lines in C.S. Lewis’ writing comes from The Screwtape Letters, when we are told about God: “He relies on the troughs even more than on the peaks; some of His special favourites have gone through longer and deeper troughs than anyone else.” When we’re in the midst of a trough or valley in our lives, be it interpersonal, financial, spiritual, whatever, it is hard to remember that God relies on the troughs to show us more of Himself and more of our need for Him. 739 more words

The Illustrated Screwtape Letters - C.S. Lewis

A C.S. Lewis story I had not read before, this satirical novel was brilliant, and definitely timely for me personally. The 31 chapters are each an individual letter from Screwtape, a senior devil, to Wormwood, a junior devil whose job it is to keep his “patient”, a newly converted Christian man, from getting too deep into things with the Enemy; aka God. 186 more words
