You are just where His providence has, in its inscrutable, but all wise and righteous decision, placed you. It may be painful, irksome, trying position, but it is right. Oh yes, it is right!
Strive, then, to live a life of daily dependence upon God. Oh it is a sweet and holy life! It saves from many a desponding feeling, from many a corroding care, from many an anxious thought, from many a sleepless night, from many a tearful eye, and from many an imprudent and sinful scheme.
Thus you shall walk with God through this valley of tears, until you exchange sorrow for joy, suffering for ease, sin for purity, labor for rest, conflict for victory, and all earth's chequered, gloomy scenes for the changeless, cloudless happiness and glory of heaven!
