L.B. Cowman, first published in 1925, I have read almost consistently for 18 years, deriving comfort and encouragement from the daily entries.
Today, July 29th, is no different. A touch of today's blessing reads;
"We must trust the Lord through the darkness, and honor Him with unwavering confidence even in the midst of difficult situations." J.R. Macduff
" If we could see beyond today
As God can see;
If all the clouds should roll away,
The shadows flee;
O'er present griefs we would not fret.
Each sorrow we would soon forget,
For many joys are waiting yet
for you and me.
If we could know beyond today
As God does know,
Why dearest treasures pass away
And tears must flow;
And why the darkness leads to light,
Why dreary paths will soon grow bright;
Some day life's wrongs will be made right,
Faith tells us so.
"If we could see, if we could know,"
We often say,
But God in love a veil does throw
Across our way;
We cannot see what lies before,
And so we cling to Him the more,
He leads us till this life is o'er;
Trust and obey.
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you."
Post dedicated to anyone so broken in heart,
yet, not beyond the healing touch of One, who
carried all our brokenness to the Cross, and
redeemed sorrow for inexpressible joy.
