The next best thing?

"Well, Andrew," Dawtie said, "if the Lord hasn't appeared in His own likeness to deliver me, He's done the next best thing."
"Dawtie," answered Andrew, "the Lord never does the next best. The thing He does is always better than the thing He does not!"

-"The Elect Lady" by George MacDonald

If only we could learn this lesson and remember it! Again, it comes back to trust; if we truly believed that God loves us—that He is good—we would trust Him. And He is, He really is.
