Are you going through a dark time in your life, or has something happened to you in the past, that you still do not understood.
"Your heavenly Father knoweth" Matthew 6:32b
A visitor at a school for the deaf and dumb was writing questions on the blackboard for the children. By and by he wrote this sentence: "Why has God made me to hear and speak, and made you deaf and dumb?"
The awful sentence fell upon the little ones like a fierce blow in the face. They sat so stunned, unable to move, before that dreadful "Why?" And then a little girl arose. Her lip was trembling. Her eyes were swimming with tears. Straight to the board she walked, and, picking up the crayon, wrote with firm hand these precious words: "Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in thy sight!" What a reply! It reaches up and lays hold of an eternal truth upon which the most mature believer as well as the youngest child of God may also securely rest--the truth that God is your Father.
Do you mean that? Do you really and fully believe that? When you do, then your heart of faith will no longer remain in weary unrest, but will settle down permanently in its resting place of peace. "Your Father!"
I can still believe that a day comes for all of us, however far off it may be, when we will understand; when these tragedies, that now seem to darken the very air of heaven for us, will forever dissipate.
No chance hath brought this ill to me;
'Tis God's own hand, so let it be,
He seeth what I cannot see.
There is a need-be 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
Naught but threads tangled hopelessly;
But in the front a picture fair
Rewards the worker for his care,
Proving his skill and patience rare.
Thou art the Workman, I the frame.
Lord, for the glory of Thy Name,
Perfect Thine image on the same.
May "Your Father" bless you today, and never forget that you are loved!!!
