|The Laundress 1886-1887|
Dare to trust God my friend and then you will become a living example of what he can do for you. Now you see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then you will see everything with perfect clarity. All that you know now is partial and incomplete, but then He will cause you to know everything completely, just as God now knows you completely.
No weapons form against you can overcome you; in the word, there is life, and hope and joy. Meditation of the word allows the mind to grasp the eternal truth and set in motion life changes that no one can explain not even those who are recipient of the truth because as the wind blows and we cannot see it yet we see its effect; equally God sends his influences into your life where, and when, on whom, and in what measure and degree, he pleases. Though the causes are hidden, the effects are plain, leading you to life and joy.
God is great and beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out. All who contemplate on his glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from him, the Spirit of life and truth. Press on and take hold of the promises and stand and see the awesome force of God’s power ready to prove to you all he has promised that he will do.
