You look into the fact of God every day ;you live much in your closet; you pray asnaturally as you breathe; you listen con-stantly to his voice; you dwell so close tohim that you feel the very breath of hislove fan your cheek, and your faith neverwavers. But something diverts your atten-tion from the Divine face for a moment.Doubt's Sure^ Remedy 163You become absorbed in the things of a-ture, the study of ature — the study of men, and waves, and tides, and bread, andclothes, and stocks, and bonds, and rail-roads, and fevers, and politics — and by-and-by the face of God becomes so unreal, sodim, in the distance, that you say, "I don'tknow about God. I know ature."After all, the great cure for doubt is avision of the face of God.You have a dear friend in a distant com-munity, whom you have not seen for years.In the days when you walked together youtrusted him perfectly. Lately you had somecorrespondence about a matter of business,which resulted in a misunderstanding, andyou began to doubt the friend whom youhad once trusted as you had trusted yourown heart. You wrote him sharply, andhe replied, trying to explain ; but you couldnot understand. You could not under-stand because you had begun to doubt him.
