Do you find you have a tendency to let little things bother you? Today’s devotional should help. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Corinthians 7:29-31
“Some day of days! Some dawning yet to be
I shall be clothed with immortality!
And in that day, I shall not greatly care
That Jane spilt candle grease upon the stair.
It will not grieve me then, as once it did,
That careless hands have chipped my teapot lid.
I groan, being burdened. But, in that glad day,
I shall forget vexations of the way.
That needs are often great, when means were small,
Will not perplex me any more at all.
A few short years at most (it may be less),
I shall have done with earthly storm and stress.
So, for this day, I lay me at Thy feet,
O, keep me sweet, my Master! Keep me sweet!”
