This morning I was digging through one of my old journals of quotes and found this gem. I hope it strikes a chord of hope in the heart that needs it . . . as it did in mine this morning when I re-read it.
God seems to confound our prayers, by putting off deliverance to such a point that it seems removed to a distance from which it cannot reach us. He does not often deal with us thus, because He is merciful, but He does it sometimes, for the very same reasons. (Adolphe Monod)
