Learning to be content…

(from Octavius Winslow’s “My Times in God’s Hand”)

Covet to live a life of daily dependence on God.

Oh! it is a sweet and holy life!

It will save you….
from many a desponding feeling;
from many a corroding care;
from many an anxious thought;
from many a sleepless night;
from many a tearful eye; and
from many an imprudent and sinful scheme.

Learn to be content with your present lot, with
God’s dealings with you, and His disposal of you.

You are just where His ‘providence’ has, in its
inscrutable but all wise and righteous decision,
has placed you.
