ENCOURAGEMENT

" First, He brought me here, it is by His will I am in this strait place: in that fact I will rest. Next, he will keep me here in His love, and give me grace to behave as His child. Then, He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn, and working in me the grace He means to bestow. Last, in His good time He can bring me out again--how and when He knows. Let me say I am here: (1) By God's appointment (2) In His keeping (3) Under His training (4) For His time." Andrew Murray
