Time to Reflect

In my area things are very hot and dry. In my country there is an air of unrest. In other parts of the world there is war, famine, and chaos. It is easy to forget there is One in charge of it all who has a plan beyond the vagaries of this world. Those who call on His name will find peace. It is time to reflect through the words of Frances Ridley Havergal in the hymn, "Like a River Glorious".

Like a river glorious
Is God's perfect peace....

Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow,
Never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry,
Not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry
Touch the spirit there.
