Faith

31 Oct

“Your earlier life of faith was narrow and intense, settled around a little sun-spot of experience that had as much of sense of faith in it, full of light and sweetness; then God withdrew His conscious blessings in order to teach you to walk by faith. You are worth far more to Him now than you were in your days of delight and thrilling testimony. Faith by its very nature must be tried, and the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that God’s character has to be cleared in our own minds. Faith in its actual working out has to go through spells of unsylabled isolation.” (Oswald Chambers, October 31st)

Encouragement for those finding themselves in spells of unsylabled isolation. Encouragement for me.

    Jamie; Truer words were never spoken! Sometimes walking by faith means walking in fog, or heavy rain or a snow storm blowing on Sumas Prairie!!! Trust and knowing the One who guides you is the only way to go. One step at a time. “I will never leave you” are the words our Father promises.
    So great to see you blog again!! love you!
