Just as icebergs show only a fraction of themselves above the surface, so events are always more than they appear to be at first glance. (John R. Claypool, late theologian and author)

To spot an iceberg from the deck of an ocean liner is a frightening experience. After all, you would be seeing only a small portion of the dangerous ice floe, and you are relying on the ship’s captain to steer clear of the danger. We can’t see the future, but we must not fear it. In the end, many events will turn out to be more joyful and beneficial than harmful.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
