Old Betty’s Mission

A poor old woman was very active in visiting the sick, and brought many souls to Christ. At last she caught cold and was afflicted with rheumatism. Lying in bed month after month, she was pain-worn and helpless. A preacher going to see her, asked if, after her active habits, she did not find the change very hard to bear.
"No, sir, not at all. When I was well, I used to hear the Lord say day by day:
"Betty, go here; Betty, go there; Betty, do this; Betty, do that;" and I used to do it as well as I could; and now I hear Him say every day:
"Betty, lie still and cough."
Happy old Betty! She could take all from the hand that is ever skillful, and as kind as skillful. She knew that His will was best.

WHO TOLD ME
ALL THINGS
THAT EVER I DID;
IS NOT THIS
THE CHRIST?"

CAME INTO THE WORLD
