Almost Gone

"But as for me--my feet were almost gone! My steps had well near slipped!" Psalm 73:2

Ah, how frequently have I been almost gone! I can call to mind places and times, when I have been in the very mouth of danger, on the brink of a fearful fall--and yet the Lord has held me up! But for 'special keeping'--where would I have been this morning? Andwhat would I have been? Blessed be God, though it was almost--it was not quite. This word, almost, has been sweet to my soul. Almost gone!--but altogether saved, through God's most free, and all-glorious grace!

- James Smith
