Something to Imagine With

"And now if you ask how you may know that you have truly consecrated yourself to Him, I reply, observe every indication of his will concerning you, no matter how trivial, and see whether you at once close in with that will. Lay down this principle as law - God does nothing arbitrary. If He takes away your health, for instance, it is because He has some reason in doing so; and this is true of everything of value; and if you have real faith in Him, you will not insist on knowing the reason." --- Elizabeth Prentiss


And a simple observation for today--straight from the farm:

 Following Jesus is  an exciting proposition....always there is more in Him, always drawing deeper,  pushing against the flow of feeble thoughts to reroute and retrain.   


Imagining my life  w/ this Prentiss quote (above) in mind as I clean the little cabin this chilly Saturday morning , take a walk, feed the goats, and whatever.

Thank you, Jesus, for thoughts that are higher than mine....lifting my ideas of reality.  You act in our lives with absolute purpose in all circumstances..... all happenings.
