Faith can put a candle in the darkest night. ~ Margaret Sangster God can handle our troubles and needs better than we can. All we must do is let them go so that He can do His work. Like the story of The Two Boxes, our blessings always weigh more than our sorrows when we entrust both to God.

THE TWO BOXES

I have in my hands two boxes which God gave me to hold. He said, “put all your sorrows in the black, and all your joys in the gold.” I heeded His words, and in the two boxes both my joys and sorrows I store. But though the gold became heavier each day, the black box was as light as before. With curiosity, I opened the black. I wanted to find out why. And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole. I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud. “I wonder where all my sorrows could be.” He smiled a gentle smile at me. “My child, they’re all here, with Me.” I asked, “God, why give me the boxes. Why the gold, and black with the hole? “My child, the gold is to count your blessings, the black is for you to let go.” For certain, we all have blessings to count and sorrow to set free. May you come to know God’s Love through both.

~ In Christ, Pastor Cheryl Schalm, Minister of Christian Education
