“Do not complain about what you have lost, and do not yearn to have it given back again, for then you are like Israel who wished to turn back to Egypt. God will lead you on further. Instead of the fleshpots, He gives you the Bread from heaven, and instead of water from the Nile, water from the Rock.
“But you must put your trust in Him also in the desert, and through days of darkness and difficulty. This is possible, however, only for those who have lost their self-assurance in the desert whereto God beckons His children.”
– George Steinberger, from the book In The Footprints of The Lamb
