Putting down roots.

August 2, 2010

God never places us in any position in which we cannot grow.  We may fancy that He does.  We may fear we are so impeded by fretting, petty cares that we are gaining nothing; but when we are not sending any branches upward, we may be sending roots downward. Perhaps in the time of our humiliation, when everything seems a failure, we are making the best kind of progress.
(Elisabeth Prentiss)

God chooses His men, and
He chooses their context.
(Tim Challies)

    This definitely pertains to me in this season of life. In fact, I was just praying about it a few minutes ago. I must say, practically it is so much more difficult than it is theologically, but that’s never an excuse, eh?

  2. thanks for this tia 🙂
