life-giving drops

A thought from CS Lewis
"...when pain it to be borne, a little courage helps more than much knowledge, a little human sympathy more than much courage, and the least tincture of the love of God more than all."
(Lewis, the Problem of Pain)

In times of great trial, comfort and mercy do not often come like a flood, relief does not come suddenly like a sunrise.  Yet, here and there, we receive the least little tincture of God's love, that drop of grace, of faith and hope,  that we need more than anything, that sustains us through the valley.  May God give us eyes to see and a heart to receive the life-giving droplets around us.

Let the one who is thirsty, come.

O God, you are my God;
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1
