Some days the thoughts are scattered, the spirit unsettled and searching. Then everything picked up, regardless of the source speaks to the issue at hand.
For today, Dear Reader, I shall offer only two voices with one and the same thought. The style varies, the words are different, the message the same.
And yes, both answer the question of the day that is on the heart, the question regarding future decisions, choices, steps.
"It has been well said that no man ever sank under the burden of the day.
It is when tomorrow's burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than a man can bear.
Never load yourselves so, my friends. If you find yourselves so loaded, at least remember this:
it is your own doing, not God's.
He begs you to leave the future to Him, and mind the present."
"As for the things which God has prepared for those who love Him, the Bible tells me that no man can conceive them.
God has conceived them;
God has prepared them;
God is our Father.
That is enough."
~Charles Kingley, Sermons for the Times, 1855
Yes. I touched the pages to see 'if the ink was dry'.
