CQOD: 05/30/07 -- MacDonald: the last resort

Christian Quotation of the Day

May 30, 2007
Feast of Josephine Butler, Social Reformer, 1906
Commemoration of Apolo Kivebulaya, Priest, Evangelist, 1933
    Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"
    -- Matthew 8:24-27 (NIV)

    How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to him because we have nowhere else to go. And then we learn that the storms of life have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the desired haven.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have driven me to the shores of Your grace.
