Today I feel sad. For the first time I really didn't want to get out of bed. I had to finally force myself.
I read todays devotion from "Streams In The Desert".........
Chance has not brought this ill to me;
It's God's own hand, so let it be,
For He sees what I cannot see.
There is a purpose for each pain,
And He one day will make it plain
That earthly loss is heavenly gain.
Like as a piece of tapestry
Viewed from the back appears to be
Only threads tangled hopelessly;
But in the front a picture fair
Rewards the worker for his care,
Proving his skill and patience rare.
You are the Workman, I the frame,
Lord for the glory of Your Name,
Perfect Your image on the same.
Parts of this are very hard for me to swallow but I'll keep trusting.
