we are here for some definite service.  we have been committed to some work which has not been committed to others.  we have our mission which we may never know in this life, but we shall be told it in the next.  we are links in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.  we are not created for naught.  therefore, we must trust – whatever, wherever we are.   sickness – may serve. perplexity – may serve.  sorrow – may serve.  nothing is in vain.  we may feel alone, desolate, sorrowful, overwhelmed, lost, fearful, unknowing…yet we are never, in Truth, without hope, without strength, without Spirit.
