I loved reading this from Hannah Whitall Smith that she wrote in her book Everyday Religion back in 1902. She writes, “The only thing that can bring unfailing joy to the soul is to understand and know God. Everything depends on what He is. He has created us and put us in our present environment, and we are absolutely in His power.”
When I consider the great love and kindness of God—expressed most powerfully in Jesus Christ—I entrust my life to Him. We are absolutely in His power. No matter what our present environment looks or feels like, we are in His power even there.
