A Snippet from a Letter to a Friend.

 For the weary and the sick,

I am praying for you. I know it's difficult to be still and I know you know this, that there is great joy having no distractions between ourselves and our great Saviour. There is precious insight in the much afforded quiet time and as much as pills, and herbs, and various other remedies bring relief, it is true that there is an equal amount of relief in walking through sanctification, delighting to do the smallest thing He asks us in faith, and becoming so acquainted with Him, it seems hard to have to part and bring the mind back to the cares of this world. Whatever work He has for us, sitting at His feet or using what strength He gives us for the advancement of His kingdom here, we ought to say, we are willing. Knowing that the world is entirely His and providentially ordained to bow at His feet, with or without our help, is a great comfort.

I love you,
Resting in the Saviour,
