"Light Shining Out of Darkness"
God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform,
He plants his footsteps in the Sea,
And rides upon the Storm.
Deep in unfathomable Mines,
Of never failing Skill,
He treasures up his bright designs,
And works his Sovereign Will.
Ye fearfull Saints fresh courage take,
The clouds ye so much dread,
Are big with Mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust him for his Grace,
Behind a frowning Providence
He hides a Smiling face.
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour,
The Bud may have a bitter taste,
But wait, to Smell the flower.
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain,
God is his own Interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
~William Cowper (1731-1800)~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Whether you are in sunshine or in rain today, trust in the Lord! Hold
on to Him and don't lost hope, regardless of what may come your way.
The Lord has all things in His hands. Our God is in control!
He will never lead His children astray.
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall
strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Let us, as His dear children, look unto our God and trust
Him in every area of our life. He will make
His will known to us and in the end, all will be well.
You may not see the light that is above the dark clouds
but keep on trusting the Lord. Keep on praising Him.
He will make a way for you and will bring you
through whatever you are facing.
And we know that all things work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
