wisdom for this place in the journey

“there is then no need for fret when faithfully turning to Him, if He leads us but slowly into His secret chambers.  if He gives us increasing steadiness in the deeper sense of His presence, we can only quietly thank Him.  if He holds us in the stage of alternation we can thank Him for His loving wisdom, and wait upon His guidance through the stages for which we are prepared.  for we cannot take Him by storm.  the strong man must become the little child, not understanding but trusting the Father.
-Thomas R. Kelly, A Testament of Devotion
