Joy and Strength 07/23

I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not, I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isa. xlii. 16.

When over dizzy heights we go,
One soft hand blinds our eyes,
The other leads us, safe and slow,
O Love of God most wise!
Eliza Scudder.

THE simple thought of a life which is to be the unfolding of a Divine plan is too beautiful, too captivating, to suffer one indifFerent or heedless moment. Living in this Planner, every turn of your experience will be a discovery to you of God, every change a token of His fatherly counsel. Whatever obscurity, darkness, trial, suffering, falls upon you; your defeats, losses, injuries; your outward state, ernployment, relations; what seems hard, unaccountable, severe, or, as nature might say, vexatious — all these you will see are parts or constitutive elements in God’s beautiful and good plan for you, and, as such, are to be accepted with a smile. Take your burdens, and troubles, and losses, and wrongs, if come they “^Ust and will, as your opportunities, knowing that God has girded you for greater things than these.
Horace Bushnell
