“If only we had died by the Lord’s hand in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat and ate all the bread we wanted. Instead, you brought us into this wilderness to make this whole assembly die of hunger!”
It is a sad thing when we allow life’s disappointments to make us despondent! The problem of Christian living in this troublesome world, is not to escape experiences of hardship–but to retain sweetness of spirit in all such experiences.
You must have hardships, losses, sorrows. But see to it that you retain through all these–a gentle heart, full of trust and hope. Then when the harsh adversity is past–you will emerge unharmed, with even richer life, tenderer beauty, and deeper joy! The secret of such victorious living–is a trust in God which never fails.
