Trust the Shepherd

“For the true child of God there is no darkness where He does not intend to bring us to the greater light. There is no trial too great that the Great Shepherd will not watch over the soul of His Own. There is no sorrow His comfort cannot fill and no separation too great that He will not compensate with Himself. Let us face this coming year with the true knowledge of His sovereign Wisdom at work on our eternal benefit.” Brian Troxel

A man who lived up to his name

One night as he was coming out of a street that had a particularly evil reputation, a policeman met him and said, “How have you the courage to go into those places? We policeman never go there except in twos or threes.” “I never walk alone, either,” replied Goforth. “There is always Someone with me.”

Our faith determines our walk

“The fervency of an individual’s faith is revealed in its pursuit of Him. Those who see the summits of the call of God in Christ will not allow their experience to determine His Call; they have come to the place where the Call begins to determine their experience”
