On page 556 of the Gaither Homecoming Bible, Bill Gaither writes, "If our faith is based on winning all the time, we eventually run into big trouble. A belief system that insists God's will for our lives will never involve loss will inevitably break down at some point, and then what?" Later, he continues, "I've lost some of the most precious people in my life during the past decade. And it has been hard. But to quote one of my favorite gospel poets, Andraé Crouch, 'Through it all ... I've learned to trust in Jesus.' I wish life could be all about winning and gaining. But, in truth, my life is far richer for having learned to lean on Him more heavily than I ever thought I would have to."
