Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich

No longer forward, nor behind I look in hope or fear; but, grateful, take the good I find, the best of now and here. Horace Bushnell (Congregational Minister 1802-1876).

Do you complain of your birth, your training, your employment, your personal problems? Never imagine that you could ever be something if only you had a different lot. God understands His own plan. He knows what you want a great deal better than you do. The very things that disappoint you most, as frustrations or obstructions, are probably what you really need.

What you call hindrances, obstacles, discouragements, are most likely God’s opportunities. Lift up your heart to receive God’s will. Do His work. Do it in your circumstances, under your cloud of obscurity, against temptation. Then you will find your condition is never opposed to your good, but really consistent with it.
