(Our famous writer Sr. Elsie Baby has a nice story for our New World readers-Thanks)

Here is a beautiful story of how one christian dreamed that she saw three others at prayer. As they knelt the Master drew near to them.
As He approached the first of the three, He bent over her in tenderness and grace with smiles full of radiant love and spoke to her in accents of purest sweet music.
Leaving her, He came to the next, but only placed His hand upon her bowed head, and gave her one look of loving approval.
The third woman He passed almost abruptly without stopping for a word or glance. The woman in her dream said to herself, "How greatly He must love the first one, to the second He gave His approval, but none of the special demonstrations of love He gave the first:
And the third must have grieved Him deeply, for He gave her no word at all and not even a passing look."I wonder what she has done?
And why He made so much difference between them?"
As she tried to account for the action of her Lord He himself stood by her and said,
" O woman!how wrongly hast thou interpreted me. the first kneeling woman needs all the weight of my tenderness and care to keep her feet in My narrow way. She needs My love, thought, and help every moment of the day. Without it she would fail and fall."
"The second has stronger faith and deeper love and I can trust her to trust me however things may go and whatever people do."
"The third whom I seemed not to notice, and even to neglect has faith and love of the finest quality, and her I am training by quick and drastic process for the highest and holiest service."She knows me so intimately, and trust Me so utterly, that she is independent of words or looks or any outward intimation of my approval. She is not dismayed nor discouraged by any circumstances through which I arrange that she shall pass; she trusts Me when sense and reason and every finer instinct of the natural heart would rebel - because she knows that I am working in her for eternity, and that what I do though she knows not the explanation now, she will understand hereafter. "I am silent because in my love because I love beyond the power of words express, or of human hearts to understand, and also for your sake that you may learn to love and trust Me in Spirit taught, spontaneous response to My love, without the spur of anything outward to call it forth"The silence of Jesus are as eloquent as His speech and may be a sign , not of his disapproval, but of His approval and of a deep purpose of blessing for you. you shall yet praise Him yes, even for His silence.
