Edges of His Ways

It seemed like JOY came
down from heaven today
as I looked through a
bookshelf in a thrift store:
a HELP Center that the proceeds
go to help those in need in the
small town. I used this
devotional for 3 years , always
go back to it and have my mother's
copy that I gave her. Paperback.
There was a second edition hardback:

Edges of His Ways: 1957 ( 1955 was the first

"And shall I pray Thee change Thy will, my Father,
Until it be according unto mine?
But, no, Lord, no, that never shall be, rather
I pray Thee blend my human will with Thine.

I pray Thee hush the hurrying, eager longing,
I pray Thee soothe the pangs of keen desire—
See in my quiet places, wishes thronging—
Forbid them, Lord, purge, though it be with fire."
Amy Carmichael

Oh Bonnie, that is truly wonderful! What a beautiful surprise. I am being blessed every day with the paperback copy you gave me in January. I know I'll be reading it yearly, along with Oswald Chamber's MUFHH.
