Changing Pastures

I saw a painting of a large boat laden with cattle that were being ferried across an angry swollen river in time of storm. The artist had so cleverly pictured the dark, threatening clouds and the play of the treacherous jagged lightning that I immediately concluded that the freight of poor dumb cattle was marked for destruction. But the title on the painting was simply “Changing Pastures”.

Many times we imagine that God’s plans mean disaster and affliction, but he is simply “changing pastures,” for our good and welfare of our brethren.
