Thursday Pearls

 

"Let us not be surprised when we have to face difficulties. When the wind blows hard on a tree, the roots stretch and grow the stronger, let it be so with us. Let us not be weaklings, yielding to every wind that blows, but strong in spirit to resist."

~ Amy Carmichael

"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number:  he callth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one falleth."

~ Isaiah 40:26, KJV

A wonderfully, richly blessed Thursday to you, lovely readers...

Kelly-Anne, thank you so much for sharing this Amy Carmichael quote. She is one of my heroes of the faith. Our trials are meant to make us stronger and to grow us up a bit more...stretching us and conforming us more to the image of our precious Saviour.

Wonderful post Kelly-Amne! I believe each trial we go through makes us a bit stronger. And I thank God for walking me through them!

I hope you have a delightful week my friend!

I love Amy Carmicheal and her quote is a great one. If only we could look at difficulties when they come, and thank the Lord for them, and realize we are growing, while we struggle. It takes a mindset and a heart change, doesn't it! Appreciate you dear friend, may the Lord bless you richly today :)
