Encouragement Today

I was catching up on some Streams In The Desert reading today, with having been out of town this weekend (and having not brought the book along). I want to share these few small snippets with you that have blessed me & brought me to tears today.

Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.
~F.W. Faber~

The burden of suffering seems a tombstone hung about our necks, while in reality it is only the weight which is necessary to keep down the diver while he is hunting for pearls.
~Richter~

We look at our burdens and heavy loads, and shrink from them; but as we lift them and bind them about our hearts, they become wings, and on them we rise and soar toward God.
~J.R. Miller~

Nearly all God’s jewels are crystallized tears.

It is such a comfort to drop the tangles of life into God’s hands and leave them there.
