Quote of the Weekend

“What-e’er my God ordains is right:

Holy his will a-bideth;

I will be still what-e’er He doth,

And follow where He guideth:

He is my God; though dark my road,

He holds me that I shall not fall:

Where-fore to him I leave it all.

– Samuel Rodigast

(This is one of those great hymns that is unfettered by time.  We all face moments, some of them very long, where our road is dark.  It is then that we need to be reminded that He Holds us!  He holds our souls and we will not fall, but by His grace, endure.)

  1. This is a great hymn to help you preach truth to yourself in deep difficulty, but it’s also a great hymn to confront ourselves on the days that aren’t all that bad, but find us grumpy & out of sorts. At least, I find it so.
