Faith in His Alchemy

"Rest awhile in His shade; you cannot shade yourself. Forget your glory; what glory outshines His? You have kindled a lamp, but despise the sun. You drink of His well, you who deny all rain, all rivers, all seas.

"You've professed to know things you don't know. You've declared belief though doubt has found its way within. You've concealed your ignorance and denied your doubts, thinking that His forbearing mercy might transform ignorance to knowledge, and doubt to certitude."

I said, "I am a lead coin, but have faith in His alchemy."
