It comes as a surprise oftentimes, from out of the blue, a circumstance we never expected nor wished for. The smashing of indifference, making our hearts true, the trial that makes us run back to Jesus once more.
A tragedy of trusting in self, not our invisible King, forgetting the Lover of our souls, we turned to worldly ways. Our heavenly Father hits the sword and makes it ring, through frowning providence He smiles behind a cloud of grey.
The Hammer strikes us as we lay upon the anvil, forging again the mind of Christ in us. We are his children and at this we should not marvel, if not for the Hammer and Anvil, we one and all would be callous.
