We will all go through testing times in our faith. Not all of these times are of God's design, some are of our own poor choices. Thankfully God is always able to guide us through these complex moments. When Watchman Née was asked about his understanding of Christianity, his reply was surprisingly honest:
"To hold onto the plough while wiping our tears; that is Christianity."
I like his words. To often we stop serving God or doing His work when we are faced with tough trials. To serve Christ is to expect those times of trial, to shed the tears, but also to carry on with God's call.
So hold onto the plough, wipe the tears and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.
Living in Grace
