Oh It Is a Sweet and Holy Life!

Learn to be content with your present lot, with  God's dealings with you, and His disposal of you.

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!

[Octavius Winslow]
