God and I

woman_at_the_well1.333183636Every hard duty that lies in your path, that you would rather not do, that it will cost you pain and struggle or sore effort to do, has a blessing in it.  Not to do it, at whatever cost, is to miss the blessing.
Every hard piece of road on which you see the Master’s shoe-prints and along which He bids you follow Him, surely leads to blessing, which you cannot get if you cannot get, if you cannot go over the steep, thorny path.
Every point of battle to which you come, where you must draw your sword and fight the enemy, has a possible victory which will prove a rich blessing to your life.  Every heavy load that you are called to lift, hides in itself some strange secret of strength.
I cannot do it alone
The waves run fast and high
And the fogs close all around
The light goes out in the sky
But I know that we two
Shall win in the end
Coward and wayward and weak
I change with the changing sky
Today so eager and bright
Tomorrow too weak to try
But He never gives in
So we two shall win
I could not guide it myself
My boat on life’s wild sea
There’s One who sits by my side
Who pulls and steers with me
And I know that we two
Shall safe enter port
