A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

January 4, 2016

Wishing you all a faith filled and Happy New Year!! I read this today and wanted to share it. Oh how much I needed to hear this….maybe you too!

Excerpt from the Streams in the Desert Devotional for today.

“The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety – George Mueller

You will never learn faith in comfortable surroundings. God gives us the promises in a quiet hour; God seals our covenants with great and gracious words, then He steps back and waits to see how much we believe; then He lets the tempter come, and the test seems to contradict all that He has spoken. It is then that faith wins its crown. That is the time to look up through the storm, and among the trembling, frightened seamen cry, “I believe God that it shall be even as it was told me.”

Believe and trust; through stars and suns,
Through life and death, through soul and sense,
His wise, paternal purpose runs;
The darkenss of His Providence
Is starlit with Divine intents”

Hope you have a great day! You are loved!
