Have you ever felt God’s leading through circumstances beyond your control, and through it all He helps you find the destination you seek? When we are climbing a mountain and the pass seemed blocked by some obstacle, God gives us directions as how to press on. When the mountain seemed too steep for Amy Carmichael to climb, she wrote, “His thoughts said, The coil of circumstances is beyond anything I ever experienced before. His Father said, All this assemblage of complicated circumstances is the massif of the mountains thou must climb. There is a way among the boulders of the moraine, between the seracs of the glaciers, over the snow-bridges that cross the crevasses, round the overhanging snow-fields and up the precipices and long arêtes. There is a way through the deep shadows that will seem to bar thy path at times. Press on, press on to the summit.” (His thought said…His Father said… p.9). God leads his children in the pathway He wants them to go. Sometimes the pathway seemed blocked by boulders, steep jagged rocks, or raging rivers, but, then God whispers in our ear His secret passageway to help us find our way home.
Thought for Today: “Some thru the waters, some thru the flood, Some thru the fire, but all thru the blood; Some thru great sorrow, but God gives a song. In the night season and all the day long.” (George A. Young 1855-1935)
