Today is a beautiful day, because God prepares us through struggle and rewards our faithful effort.
“All God’s dealings with man are characterized by two stages. There is the time of preparation, when command and promise, with the mingled experience of effort and impotence, of failure and partial success, with the holy expectancy of something better, that these waken, train, and discipline men for a higher stage. Then, comes the time of fulfilling when faith inherits the promise and enjoys what it had so often struggled for in vain.” (Andrew Murray. Humility, p 98. New York: Anson D. F. Randolph & Co. 1895) #joyinverse #blessedthisdayandeveryday
