Proverbs 26:7 - Like the legs which are useless to the lame, So is a proverb in the mouth of fools.
Words to Ponder
You are leaving port under sealed orders and in a troubled period.
You cannot know whither you are going or what you are to do.
But why not take the Pilot on board who knows the nature of your sealed orders from the outset,
and who will shape your entire voyage accordingly?
He knows the shoals and the sandbanks, the rocks and the reefs,
He will steer you safely into that celestial harbor where your anchor will be cast for eternity.
Let His almighty nail-pierced hands hold the wheel, and you will be safe. - Peter Marshall
