Found this in my devotions today:
In the bitter waves of woe
Beaten and tossed about
By the sullen winds that blow
From the desolate shores of doubt,
Where the anchors that faith has cast
Are dragging in the gale,
I am quietly holding fast
To the things that cannot fail.
And fierce though the fiends may fight,
And long though the angels hide,
I know that truth and right
Have the universe on their side;
And that somewhere beyond the stars
Is a love that is better than fate.
When the night unlocks her bars
I will see Him - and I will wait.
~ by Washington Gladden
The greatest challenge in receiving great things from God is holding on for the last half hour.
Hold fast, dear reader. Hold fast.
