Not a verse today, but a poem.
The future is a blank without a view.
That which I wanted most, You have denied;
I cannot understand (and I have tried);
There’s nothing I can do but wait on You.
Earth offered much, and I had, lingering long
Outside her lighted windows, wistful grown –
Till at my side I heard a voice – Your own.
Lord, how could I resist a love so strong?
Take all away. I am content to know
Such love is mine – for life is all too brief
To grieve for pleasures bringing only grief;
Give me but You; it is enough just so.
Enough – and more! Such love for You keeps growing –
In You I find my deepest joy complete,
All longing satisfied, and pain made sweet;
In You my cup is filled to overflowing.
- Ruth Bell Graham
May you be filled with the deepest joy complete as you spend time at the Savior’s feet.
