certain hope

"I cannot forget the flints on my own path and the thorns. But, looking back, I know I would not have chosen any other if I could have known when I first began to walk in it what it would mean of His companionship, and also of the power to enter into the griefs of others. It was all worth while, ten thousand times worth while.

Don't let anything discourage you. Some may disappoint you--He was disappointed. You will find that nothing is too small for His regard. He will say things to you that you could not repeat--they would sound too small, too intimate--but they will be the joy and rejoicing of your heart."
