The following poem was quoted by H. A. Ironside in yesterday's devotional in his book THE CONTINUAL BURNT OFFERING. It is worth repeating because so many of us find ourselves asking the big question, "WHY?".

I would not ask Thee why
My path should be
Through strange and stony ways -
Thou leadest me!

I would not ask Thee how
Loss worketh gain,
Knowing that some day soon -
All shall be plain.

My heart would never doubt
Thy love and care,
However heavy seems
The cross I bear.

Nor would I, Father, ask
My lot to choose,
Lest seeking selfish ease
Thy best I lose.

~ Grace E. Troy
