The Crushing

David was anointed as a boy in the fields, but crushed in the caves.  He offered up praise in the crushing.

Jesus was astonishing as a boy in the temple, but crushed on the cross.  He offered up Himself in the crushing.

Job was blessed as a man on the earth, but crushed by Satan. He offered up praise in the crushing.

How have you been crushed?  How has your life been crushed?  You can offer up the incense of your heart in the crushing.  Its a unique smell, a sweet smelling incense to our God.incense burning
