“We think we need the whole plan; God thinks we need faith.” –my pastor, on Sunday, during his sermon about Abram
“Promises are made on the mountain, but saints are forged in the desert.” –same pastor, same sermon
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish it’s work so that you may be mature and complete not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault and it will be given to him.” –James 1, memorized it in high school, still rattling around in there and popping out at helpful times, so thankful for that!
These veggies were harvested from our garden recently. We’ve had a lot of sun and warmer weather than usual. After a very buggy, low-yield garden summer for us, how unexpected these blessings are! Like these vegetables, God’s blessings always seem to come most/biggest when I expect them the least.
