I was praying for a friend when I saw this, it shows how at times, we wade though what seems like mud and mire until we get to our personal barricades and then, if we keep going we get through them. I am amazed and inspired by the determination and resilience of the human spirit.

Someone wise once told me "Never, never, never give up!

 

 

Throughout our lives, many trials assail us.
Some are attacks from the enemy of our souls. Some are disciplines from God as Father.
Learn to discern between the two. Resist the one and stand in trust.
Embrace the other as discipline, with open arms, it is the instrument of eternal internal change.

"The people stood at a distance, but Moses approached the thick darkness where God was".
Exodus 20:21

 

One of my children used to say rays of light were like lifts to heaven

I have found that if I can learn to focus on Him in whatever circumstances I find myself, all is well with my soul.

 

 

When photographing this picture, the sun came out and shone in the shape of a cross (Abandoned 2). Consequently there are two pictures, one of the original and one with God's special effects.
