After counseling for close to 40 years, I am even more convinced that suffering is from God and that it is love and genius at the same time. It is all from God. God has set up every single setting, every single situation, and He wants you to exchange your character for His character in a short lifetime—so He is in a hurry to stir these new insspiratgredients into the mixture of the heart, and He must bake at a higher temperature and more quickly. Real porcelain has to be baked at a very high temperature. Stoneware baked at a lower temperature is much more fragile; it breaks and chips. The porcelain fire is quick and it is much hotter, but it is for a superior purpose—for noble use.
