The Mark Of A Faithful & Loving Touch

Jacob limped [the] next morning as he went forward, but that limp was because God's hand had touched him. We may have a terrible sorrow which gives us an emotional limp, but it is where God, in His Love and Mercy, has touched us, bringing us a blessing, with a consciousness of God's Presence. God has left in our hearts the mark of His loving Touch.

-Nelson Bell, missionary to China, on the death of his baby son

He who hath led will lead
All through the wilderness
He who hath fed will surely feed ...
He who hath heard the cry
Will never close His ear,
He who hath marked thy faintest sigh Will not forget thy tear.
He loveth always, faileth never,
So rest in Him today - forever.

-Catherine Carmichael, in letter to daughter Amy
