How to Cling to God No Matter What
Wandering through every day of my life is a river of hope…sometimes broad and quiet…sometimes narrow and raging…sometimes, admittedly, a tiny trickle in a deep, vast, dried-up riverbed…always there. The river sings:
God is good;
Knowing Him is more important than any other thing,
more than comfort,
more than attainments,
more than satisfaction;
The key to knowing Him is trust;
The key to trust is only really found in adversity.
For that quiet, loud, imperceptible river I am grateful.
