I Love Those Mitford Books!




" Are you there, Lord?  Sometimes I can't sense your presence, I have to go on faith alone.  You want us to walk by faith, You tell us so. . . don't we go on faith that the sun will set, the moon will rise, our breath will come in and go out again, our hearts will beat?  Give me faith Lord, to know Your Presence as surely as I know the beating of my own heart.  I've felt so far from You. . ."       A prayer by Father Tim  (In This Mountain pages 178-179)

Wisdom from Oswald Chambers...   " At times God puts us through the discipline of darkness to teach us to heed him.  Song birds are taught to sing in the dark, and we are put into the shadow of God's hand until we learn to hear Him. . .Watch where God puts you into darkness, and when you are there keep your mouth shut.  Are you  in the dark just now in your circumstances, or in your life with God? Then remain quiet. . .When you are in the dark, listen, God will give you a very precious message for someone else when you get into the light."         (In This Mountain page 178)
