WOW!

what a great message for me to hear. How wonderful that God loves us enough to put our happiness aside for greater things. And in the process - make us happier! Amazing. Thanks Mike!

Who is Leonard Ravenhill? Quote on holiness reminds me of the premise of Gary Thomas's book, Sacred Marriage.

Leonard Ravenhill was a contempory of A.W. Tozer, he spoke and wrote about revival in the 60's and 70's. Not sure when he died, but he was elderly when I met him.
