Oh, no here He comes again! I am so weak and puny; He is strong and powerful! I feel like I may be crushed! This may be the last time I am in one piece! I knew this could happen; but that does not make it any easier to accept!

At times we feel like we are grinded under the heels of humanity, draining us of all signs of life. Guess what, we are just getting ready for a life change!
