"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us" (Rom. 8:37, NKJV).
Once there was a farmer whose old mule accidentally fell into the farmer's dry well. The farmer heard the mule braying (or whatever mules do when they fall into dry wells). After carefully assessing the situation, the farmer sympathized with the mule but decided that neither the mule nor the dry well was worth saving.
