For he hath not despised
nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath he hid his face from him;
but when he cried unto him,
Christ sometimes delays His help
that He may try our faith and quicken our prayers.
The boat may be covered with the waves,
and He sleeps on;
but He will wake up before it sinks.
He sleeps, but He never oversleeps;
and there are not “too lates” with Him.
Continue to wait . . . Today
