I certainly wouldn’t want to be alone on life’s river as it carves its treacherous course through uncertainty. What’s around the next bend? Is there another rapids or waterfalls? Can my vessel handle the distance? What about the hidden rocks?
This poem has been an encouragement to me because my life belongs to Him and I rest upon His promises.
“Behind our life the Weaver stands
And works His wondrous will;
We leave it all in His wise hands,
And trust His perfect skill.
Should mystery enshroud His plan,
And our short sight be dim,
We will not try the whole to scan,
But leave each thread to Him.”
– C. Murray

In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
