a wonderful reminder

A friend emailed me this quote this morning and it was such a sweet reminder to me. 


"What if, sometimes, there are mists and fogs so thick that I cannot see the path? 
Tis enough that You hold my hand, and guide me in the darkness;
 for walking with You in the gloom–is far sweeter and safer than walking alone in the sunlight!

Dear Lord, give me grace to trust You wholly, whatever may befall;
 yielding myself up to Your leading, and leaning hard on You when “dangers are in the path.
” Your way for me has been marked out from all eternity, and it leads directly to Yourself and home!"
~Susannah Spurgeon

We all are going through tests and trials, some big and some small. I love this line,"for walking with You in the gloom-is far sweeter and safer than walking alone in the sunlight" It makes me thankful for the hope I have in Christ. It reminds me of Gods goodness to me in salvation alone. Nothing compares to Him.


enjoying hope in Jesus,
