My Gandhi devotional

Apparently I'm all about the devotionals these days.  I have one I read in the morning and another I read at night.  But today I'm writing about my Gandhi devotional, because basically everyday I read something that I need to be reading.
First of all it's called Mohan-Mala A Gandhian Rosary and I have no idea if it's widely available.  I found it at The Dusty Bookshelf which is the coolest second hand book shop in Lawrence.  Well, it's the coolest book shop in Lawrence if you don't mind that they have no rhyme or reason to their shelving system and have no idea what books they actually have...You kind of just have to look around and hope for the best. But I digress.
I just wanted to share today's with you.

God is the hardest taskmaster I have known on this earth, and He tries you through and through.  And when you find that your faith is failing or your body is failing you, and you are sinking, He comes to your assistance somehow or other and proves to you that you must not lose faith and that He is always at your beck and call, but on His terms, not on your terms.  So I have found.  I cannot really recall a single instance when, at the eleventh hour, He has forsaken me.

Maybe this particular entry struck a chord with me because last year was basically an entire year of total crap, but I really needed to read this, and I didn't even know it. Haha.
