“All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood.” -Isaac Watts
In the face of the death of a toddler girl in my church, what can you say? Lord, can I hold on to my daughter forever? You have not asked me to lay Joanna on the alter like Isaac, but if you took her from me could I still say “God is good all the time”? She is definitely charming, but would I say that my own daughter is a “vain thing”?
Lord, increase my faith.
