GROWTH: I'm in it, I know the feeling so well, I am in another growing time in my Christian walk. I remember the pain in my legs, called "growing pains", when I was a little girl. It's never easy to grow, a tall oak has to battle all of the elements; lightning, drought, flood, cold, from its life on the forest floor to the towering heights. A little bird can't fall from the sky without our Father knowing...caring. I know He watches me. It gets so hard sometimes, but God is good, always good and always seeking our good..our growth, our towering heights.
SURRENDER: I know many of you are going through hard times at this moment. Christian, release your fears and sorrows to the One who can and will help you. He is "our very present help in times of trouble". And I say this as much to myself as to you.
As I sit here typing I understand that there may be one of you on the "forest floor", beginning this steep climb, the narrow path, the Journey. I am calling back, "The clefts in the rock are safe, all is right because God is in these hard places with us. He has predetermined our steps, He IS our hiding place."
Keep this one thing to the forefront of your mind, "That I may know Him."Love,
