Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: May 23, 2016

George Matheson…was only a teenager when doctors told him he was going blind.  Not to be denied, he pursued his studies, [graduating from the University of Glasgow and]…sightless [by the time he completed seminary].  His fiancee returned his engagement ring.  Matheson never married.  He adapted to this sightless world but never recovered from his broken heart.  He became a powerful and poetic pastor, led a full and inspiring life.  Yet occasionally the pain of his unrequited affection flared up….  His sister’s wedding…ceremony brought back memories of the love he had lost.  In response, he turned to the unending love of God for comfort and penned these words…: “O love that will not let me go, I rest my weary soul in thee; I give thee back the life I owe, that in thine ocean depths its flow may be richer, fuller be.”
