Encouraging Words

"Don't measure God's mind by your own. It would be a poor love that depended not on itself, but on the feelings of the person loved. A crying baby turns away from its mother's breast, but she does not put it away till it stops. She holds it closer.

For my part, in the worst mood I am ever in, when I don't feel I love God at all, I just look up to His love. I say to Him, "Look at me. See what state I am in. Help me!"

Ah! You would wonder how that makes peace. And the love comes of itself; sometimes so strong, it nearly breaks my heart."
George MacDonald (b. 1824)

With love,
