God KnowsAnd I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.And he replied:Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night. And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.So heart be still:What need our little lifeOur human life to know,If God hath comprehension?In all the dizzy strifeOf things both high and low,God hideth His intention.God knows. His willIs best. The stretch of yearsWhich wind ahead, so dimTo our imperfect vision,Are clear to God. Our fearsAre premature; In Him,All time hath full provision. Then rest: untilGod moves to lift the veilFrom our impatient eyes,When, as the sweeter featuresOf Lifes stern face we hail,Fair beyond all surmiseGods thought around His creaturesOur mind shall fill. From the Gate of the Year by Minnie Louise Haskins____________________________This is so beautiful. My heart leaps with joy at the images these words bring to mind...As I stand in a world filled with darkness, trembling I reach out into the darkness knowing JESUS will take hold of my hand and lead me...I just wanted to share this with you all here. Be encouraged HE does not leave or abandon HIS children!!!God blessmaryjane
With all the darkness that so evidently surrounds us, it is truly good to know, that God does hold our hands.God bless.
