Don't know the author of the quote, but I feel what he says.
"Through all of the brokenness and weariness that wears and tears on the human heart, the love of God keeps us from wreckage. The ship may rock heavy against the tide, but Hallelujah, He remains in control and we remain in Him, protected, directed, whole." —M.H. Nichols
Along these lines, read my poem, THE LONGER ON EARTH.
