A Response In Painful Times

In response to a difficult time in his life, Andrew Murray sat down and wrote these words:

“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, 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… By God’s appointment, In His"

Wow...that was a long time again, I think. Do you have a date from that? I haven't read Murray consistently for a long time.

Definitely pertains to my present situation...thanks for reminding me whose I am!
