God usually doesn't allow us to be quickly transported out of
challenging times. He wants first that we should grow and rest in Him
in the midst of them. That our hearts would thirst for Him.
Not always out of our troublous times,
And the struggles fierce and grim,
But IN - deeper IN- to our one sure rest,
The place of our peace, in Him~
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Peaceful, restful wishes to you on this Sunday.
