The Preceeding President

It’s interesting to me that James Buchanan, the president who preceded one of the greatest national leaders in history, Abraham Lincoln, was a dud. Presiding dilatorily over a bitterly divided nation, he passively led the country into civil war.  Yet, God was in the shadows of a nation that was tearing apart at the seams, molding the humblest of men for His glory. This gives me much to hope in. 

When God wants to drill a man, and thrill a man and skill a man, 

When God wants to mold a man to play the noblest part, 

When He yearns with all His heart to create so great and bold a man That all the world should be amazed,

Watch His methods, watch His ways…
