But I would ye should understand, brethren,
that the things which happened unto me
have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel.
Your disappointments of the past were but steps along the path that led you back to Me. Know that no good thing will I withhold from them that love Me. But when your desires and ambitions led you in contrary ways, I wisely cut them off to safe limits – having always in view that which would ultimately satisfy your deepest desire. That is My wisdom and mercy – it is always in operation, and unrecognized by My children. So your disappointments become inconsequential – except that they are signal points of My overruling hand of mercy on you. Believe this, My child, and count it all joy... There is no loss – no ultimate loss – to you if you will accept My higher gift – the treasure of My love in the secret place of your heart. So few find it! Be one of them, ~ Hal Helms
