"Sometimes My blessings come to you in mysterious ways: through pain and trouble. At such times you can know My goodness only through your trust in Me. Understanding will fail you, but trust will keep you close to Me." –– Jesus Calling, March 31st
This quote was part of the devotional I read this morning. This (and the entire devo) reminded me of the complete and total peace that was God's blessing to me while I was walking in and through various valleys over the past ten months. As I pray for a number of different people who are fighting battles with cancer, the majority of whom I know only through email, I'm going to remember to pray this for them, that their trust in God will keep them close to Him.
