There Are Times…

there are times when all that the Christian can responsibly do
is trust his heavenly Father in the midst of darkness and pain…
it does help to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel,
even if you cannot yet see it;
to know that God is in control
and is committed to His people’s good,
even though it still does not look like that to you…
so we learn to trust our heavenly Father
and rely on His wisdom to take us
through paths we never would have chosen for ourselves,
while learning life lessons we would never have learned any other way…
this mixture of faith and anguish…”
_d.a. carson, How Long, O Lord
