(J.R. Miller, “Intimate Letters on Personal Problems” 1914)
“We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose!” Romans 8:28
We can put into the hands of God, all problems and troubles, even the things which have seemed hard and hurtful — knowing that there is a Hand which will so shape results as to bring out of all the tangles — a beautiful web. Even our faults, our follies and our sins — we may put into the same Hand if we are truly penitent, and leave them there, knowing that from these, too, some blessing will come to us.
It is astonishing how good God is to us, and how He takes whatever we give Him, even the poorest fragments of our obediences, even ourmistakes and our sins — and brings something helpful and full of good for us out of them!
