A note from a mentor

A dear old saint and mentor of mine for more than 40 years wrote a note to me in response to a question I had.  Here is part of his note. I hope his words encourage you in your new day,

"I've learned two fundamental truths in 79 years:  life is difficult and God is adequate--but it's painful anyway and yet God more than compensates for the pain.  A marvelous verse that has helped me a lot is Psalm 94:19 (KJV)   'In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.'  The long perspective gets us through as the Lord renews us day by day--and we only need sustenance for one day at a time."
