"Not by measuring the waves can you prevail;
not by gauging the wind will you grow strong;
to scan the danger may be to fall before it;
to pause at the difficulties, is to have them break above your head.
Lift up your eyes unto the hills, and go forward --
there is no other way.
'Dost thou fear to launch away?
Faith lets go to swim!
Never will He let thee go;
'Tis by trusting thou shalt know
Fellowship with Him.'"
~From Streams in the Desert, June 23
