Trust – what is it?
Go to that child’s couch when the storm is raging,
moaning among the tree-tops and strewing branches
on the lawn, the blackened sky echoing with the
artillery of heaven. A parent’s hand draws the curtain
and smoothes the ruffled pillow; a parent’s lip kisses all fear away.
Such is the trust and confidence of His children inspired
by their Heavenly Father in the hour of anxiety and dismay,
“In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence, and His children shall have a place of refuge.” Proverbs 14:26
John MacDuff, Thoughts for the Quiet Hour
