..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

God Often Casts Us Into Crucibles

It is very easy for us to speak and theorize about faith, but God
often casts us into crucibles to try our gold, and to separate it from
the dross and alloy. Oh, happy are we if the hurricanes that ripple
life's unquiet sea have the effect of making Jesus more precious.

Better the storm with Christ than smooth waters without Him."

I am preaching on Colossians 3:1-4. This week I am focusing on the truth, "I AM your life".... rather than being a component of my life.

During Adult Education I am beginning a new study on Job. I've an eclectic group of people. : ) A young mother with MS up to a 96 y.o. woman who lives alone and still drives.

I'm blogging on Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts.

All of these things I am reading and carrying...your post seems to weave within and without. Thanks for sharing.

Many Blessings ~ Sandi
