To Have It As Though I Had It Not
I have often found that what I sought most I did not get at the right time, not till it was too late, not till I had learned to do without it, till I had renounced it in principle (though not in desire). Perhaps it had lost some of its zest by the time it came, but it meant more as a gift and a trust. That was God’s right time — when I could have it as though I had it not. If it came, it came not to gratify me, but to glorify Him and be a means of serving him.
