Good Morning

Genesis 8:8-9
Also he sent forth a dove from him,
to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;
But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot,
and she returned unto him into the ark,
for the waters were on the face of the whole earth:
then he put forth his hand, and took her,
and pulled her in unto him into the ark.

God knows just when to withhold from us
any visible sign of encouragement,
and when to grant us such a sign.
How good it is that we may trust Him anyway!
When all visible evidence that He is remembering us are withhold,
that is best;
He wants us to realize that His Word,
His promise of remembrance is more substantial
and dependable than any evidence of our senses.
When He sends the visible evidence,
that is well also;
we appreciate it all the more after we have trusted Him without it.
Those who are readiest to trust God
without other evidence than His Word
always receive
the greatest number of visible evidences of His love.
~~~C. G. Trumbull

Delays are not refusals;
Many a prayer is registered, and underneath it the words:
“My time is not yet come.”
God has a set time as well as a set purpose,
and He who orders the bounds of our habitation
orders also the time of our deliverance. – Selected.

Appreciate God’s timing . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
