The Vast and Glorious Purposes of God

God’s purposes are so vast and glorious, beyond all guessing now, that when they are achieved and consummated, all of our sufferings and sorrows of today, even the agonies that nearly break our faith, the disasters that well-nigh overwhelm us, shall, seen from that fair country where God’s age-long dreams come true, bulk as little as bulk now the pieces of a broken toy upon a nursery floor, over which, thinking that all of our little world was in ruins, we cried ourselves to sleep.
