We are to submit to His holy will

(Mary Winslow, "Walking with Jesus")

There is nothing that can take place towards a
child of God but what our heavenly Father designs,
in infinite love, for our spiritual advancement, and
His own glory. We are to submit to His holy will,
and believe that there was a 'needs be' for it.

The Lord loves His children too well to lay upon
them the weight of a feather, without an absolute
necessity, and without some wise and loving
purpose. God deals wisely and graciously with
us in all His varying dispensations.

If tears could be shed in heaven, we would
weep that we ever mistrusted His goodness
in His dealings towards us.
