When God Says No

A young pastor friend has ... been through the trial of his life. When I saw him recently, he asked me, "What do you do when God doesn't say yes--doesn't give it, doesn't make it happen?" Then he answered his own question: "Through agony I've gotten to know God better; I love him more. ..."

He showed me a piece of paper he keeps in his wallet. It says, "Look to his face, not to his hand."
