WALKING THROUGH THE DARKNESS WITH GOD

The path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. Proverbs 4:18 (NKJV)

The Canadian Home Journal carried this exquisite poem on the treasures of darkness:

The shuttles of His purpose move to carry out His own design;
Seek not too soon to disapprove His work, nor yet assign;
Dark motives, when, with silent tread,
You view some somber fold;
For lo, within each darker thread
There twines a thread of gold.
Spin cheerfully,
Not tearfully,
He knows the way you plod;
Spin carefully,
Spin prayerfully,
But leave the thread with God.

God will work your darkness—disease, loneliness, inferiority, pain, divorce—into His masterpiece as you place your times into His skillful hands (Psalm 31:15).
