April 8th Streams in the Desert

“George Matheson, the well-known blind preacher of Scotland, once said, ‘My dear God, I have never thanked You for my thorns. I have thanked you a thousand times for my roses  but not once for my thorns. I have always looked forward to  the place where I will be rewarded for my cross, but I have never thought of my cross as a present glory itself.

Teach me, O Lord, to glory in my cross. Teach me the value of my thorns. Show me how I have climbed to You through the path of pain. Show me it is through my tears I have seen my rainbows.'”
