We had such a busy weekend that we all slept in and are taking it easy today. As a result, I had forgotten about The Week in Words this morning. I just have one quote today, seen in With the Word during my devotions recently. It's a well-known poem by William Cowper, but I'd never read the verse in its entirety and paid attention to what it said:
"God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform;What a blessing to be reminded that those clouds of trouble we dread so much will be filled with blessings and mercy from the Lord! No need to worry; God is in control and He has a plan!
He plants His footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm.
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; the clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
With blessing on your head." ~~ William Cowper
