It's Hard to Be Thankful Like This

I thank You for the bitter things
they've been a friend to grace,
they've driven me from paths 
of ease
To storm the secret place.

I thank You for the friends who've failed
To meet my soul's deep need;
They've driven me to the Savior's feet
Upon His love to feed.

I'm grateful too, through all
life's way
No one could satisfy,
And so I've found in You alone
My rich, my full supply!
~Florence White Willett
But the truth is, bitter disappointment and rejection send us running to Christ - and that is a good thing.
