Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Words of Wisdom for the Weekend ~ Beautiful Life =Tried Faith + Thankful Trust {#Morevember}


"Faith untried may be true faith, but it is sure to be little faith, and it is likely to remain dwarfish as long as it is without trials. Faith never prospers so well as when all things are against her . . . No flowers wear so lovely a blue as those that grow at the foot of the frozen glacier; no stars gleam so brightly as those that glisten in the polar sky; no water tastes so sweet as that which springs amid the desert sand; and no faith is so precious as that with lives and triumphs in adversity. Tried faith brings experience. You could not have believed your own weakness had you not been compelled to pass through the rivers; and you would have never have known God's strength had you not been supported amid the water-floods. Faith increases in solidity, assurance, and intensity the more it is exercised with tribulation. Faith is precious, and its trial is precious, too. 
~ Charles Spurgeon

  1. I definitely believe God is honoring your quest for more of Him...there is so much truth & beauty in these posts for Morevember! The photo of the red birdfeeder in the snow really struck me with the beautiful contrast of our sins of scarlet being made clean as snow, because of the blood of Jesus. God's mercy is truly amazing. Blessed by your faithful sharing! Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia
