"I Know Him"

In China a faithful little Chinese woman was afflicted with a malady which caused almost unbearable pain. After some weeks of the most intense suffering she finally recovered, but after a few months the same malady again fastened itself upon her. She almost felt that she could not enter the days and weeks ahead, knowing what they held of pain and suffering.

One Sunday afternoon a group of us went to call on her and before leaving we sang several Gospel songs and had prayer. When we opened our eyes she looked up at us and with tears streaming down her cheeks and in the midst of the most acute pain, said, "I don't know why, but I know Him." She knew that the hand which permitted it was a hand of love, therefore she gladly accepted anything which that hand should allow.Gospel Herald.
