Do not grudge the Hand that is molding the still too shapeless image within you. It is growing more beautiful, though you see it not, and every touch of temptation may add to its perfection…Author: Henry Drummond


 
“Why do you tempt me Dear Lord?” I cry
“I want to serve you and you alone,” I sigh
 
This difficulty with which I fight
Is a flaw which threatens my soul like blight
 
I would serve you better without this enticement
My very spirit seems doomed by this impediment
 
Even as I cry out and plead with the master he smiles and declares
“I have promised to not let you be tried for more than you can bear
 
Endure your trials for they are like a file buffering your very core
It is like fire making steel out of cast iron ore
 
When you join me in my heavenly kingdom you will see
Overcoming those temptations made you worthy to celebrate with me”
Immaculate White Smoke

This maybe easier said than done; but, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word from the mouth of God. Try and resist, Lew. God bless!!

You write beautiful messages, Lew. Thank you for sharing your heart.

In His Name,
