"I know we have won many a soul through pleasure. All the same, it is His [God’s] invention, not ours. He made the pleasures: all our research so far has not enabled us to produce one. All we can do is to encourage the humans to take the pleasures which our Enemy has produced, at times, or in ways, or in degrees, which He has forbidden."
— C.S. Lewis, Screwtape Letters
"And the Bible says we can’t see everything God is doing in our lives either. But what looks like a dead end is really God lifting you up. Because there are no dead ends with God. Only new beginnings in disguise."
