This is an interesting take on God's sovereignty. I am not sure that I could say these words myself, but I am intruged by them.
"All that happens to me becomes bread to nourish me, soap to cleanse me, fire to purify me, a chisel to carve heavenly features on me. Everything is a channel of grace for my needs. The very thing I sought everywhere else seeks me incessantly, and given itself to me by means of all created things."
