Gathering in Christ
Also they are afraid of height and of terrors in the way; when the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper is a burden, and desire fails. For man goes to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets.
Every man has the power to slay his own weariness, not by “bucking up” as you do physically, but by suddenly looking at things from a different standpoint… It is a tremendous thing to know that God reigns and rules and rejoices, and that His joy is our strength.
