Tell Your Sorrows and Secrets

Tell Your Sorrows and Secrets

"Cursed be the man that trusteth in man and maketh

flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

For he shall be like the heath in the desert,

and shall not see when good cometh,

but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,

in a salt land and not inhabited.

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD,

and whose hope the LORD is.

For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,

and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,

and shall not see when heat cometh,

but her leaf shall be green;

and shall not be disquieted in the year of drought,

neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

Jeremiah 17:5-8

How I do like this passage! It is so descriptive of the
blessedness of trusting in the Lord alone; and the sterility
and disappointment of all creature confidence!

I know not your present difficulties, nor need I know them,
for I could not bring you out of them! But I do bless the Lord
that He has brought you into the very best posture of soul

looking to Him alone. Tell your sorrows and secrets to
this your Friend, watch His eye, obey His bidding
and go
not to carnal and lower means for relief.


("The Marvelous Riches of Savoring Christ,
The letters of Ruth Bryan
" 1805-1860)
