Crumbs – Positive Faith is Personal

” . . . The call of God is not just for a select few but for everyone. Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears, and exactly what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude.” Oswald Chambers – My Utmost for His Highest

                                                                                                          

Concerning our journey to positive faith, “A hopeful heart and an open mind are the best travelling companions.  Allow yourself to seek out rich and satisfying experiences.  Don’t be so intent upon your own journey that you forget to stop and help others along the way.”  Unknown

                                                      

“God has wisely kept us in the dark concerning future events and reserved for himself the knowledge of them, that he may train us up in a dependence upon himself and a continued readiness for every event.  Matthew Henry

                                                                                                                                                                                            
God has wisely kept us in the dark concerning future events and reserved for himself the knowledge of them, that he may train us up in a dependence upon himself and a continued readiness for every event.

Matthew Henry

                                             

God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.

Elisabeth Elliot                        

“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.”  Unknown

  This is Mary Beth and her Belgian Malinois, Sam in a field of Texas blue bonnets.  She named him after Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings.  

                                                                                                                    

The name signifies companion, loyalty, and friendship.  The picture of Mary Beth and Sam is a beautiful depiction of trust without reservation, don’t you think?                                                                                              

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”  Corrie Ten Boom

                                            

“Fear can keep us up all night long, but faith makes one fine pillow.”  Unknown
