Today’s thought – Sorrow


Good Morning

Exodus 3:7
And the LORD said,
I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt,
and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters;
for I know their sorrows;

That sorrow which can be seen is the lightest form really,
however apparently heavy;
then there is that which is not seen,
secret sorrows yet can be put into words,
and can be told to near friends
as well as be poured out to God;
but there are sorrows beyond these,
such as are never told,
and cannot be put into words,
and may only be wordlessly laid before God:
these are the deepest.
Now comes the supply for each:
“I have seen
that which is patent and external;
“I have heard their cry,”
which is the expression of this,
and of as much of the external as is expressible;
but this would not go deep enough,
so God adds,
“I know their sorrows,”
down to very depths of all,
those which no eye sees or ear ever heard.
F. R. Havergal
