A Brief Conversation

"The idea that God is everywhere, all the time, is either the most comforting or the most unsettling teaching of all."

"So, let me guess: the only difference is whether or not he's on your side."

"No. He's already on your side. The only difference is whether or not you're on his."

My comment doesn't have much to do with your current post, but I just wanted to let you know that I love your writing, and I have found more hope and inspiration within the pages of your books than I have anywhere in a long time.

I am currently suffering from severe anxiety and depression, and have sought God in light of it all to help bring me to a place of peace with myself and my life. There are some questions I have for you, rather personal and somewhat ...well, I just need to ask you some questions that I think perhaps you may be able to help. If you can find time (I know you are super busy) to contact me I would appreciate it more than you could ever know. My email is (a little juvenile, I know, I've had it since like 7th grade and I'm now 23). Thanks for your time.
