Give Him time...
I have been so encouraged by Amy Carmichael's wisdom throughout these last few years. She writes, "We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal Truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken." Reading many of your stories these past few days have brought me to tears on multiple occasions. Thanks so much for sharing your hearts with me, what an incredible honor! We take comfort in a God that knows our stories so intimately. He challenges us with a gentleness that only the Spirit of God can provide. He can tear us from Satan's grasp with such force and with such incredible passion- praise God that He has conquered death with His life! Jesus is taking our hands and teaching us His incredible love through our suffering. I do not doubt it! From the garden to the empty tomb, He is forever changing our hearts- he has rewritten death!
"Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long." -Psalm 25:5
