Excerpt from A Willing Reunion Not Impossible: A Thanksgiving Sermon Preached at St. Paul's, Brookline, November 26, 1863Of him, and through him, and to him are all things, to whom be glory for ever. Amen. And in the same strain of praise for this, the hiddenness of the providence Of God, the Psalmist exclaims, in the words of the text, In the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.I think, dear friends, in the first place, that this must be the believer's cry in reference to the shadows that hung over him during former parts of his pilgrimage, but which are now passed. Few of us but must recall moments when we seemed placed in the cleft of the rock, and, like one pent in between the rugged walls and the beetling roof Of some dark sea-side cave whose mouth the waves wash, could then see no path of escape. Yet, as we now View these moments Of depression or af¿iction, what is our present cry? Do we not feel that even for these we can praise God? Do we not see that he whose paths are on the sea, and whose footsteps are not known, led us forth by a way of which we knew nothing? Before I was af¿icted I went astray, but now have I kept thy word. We now see that our plans, which we so much cherished, were very different from God's plans, which we did not understand.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
