The center of gravity has shifted in view of such certainty; it now lies at the morning of life, which relieves the moment of the burden of its oppressiveness and dissolves the tears of evening by the power of God’s favor, which lasts forever. This is what faith will bestow on us: the ability to look from evening to morning, from the part to the whole, and so to be on our way to the joy of the redeemed.
