Hello to all my dear Readers!
It has been quite some time since you’ve heard from me here and I hope this small post tucked into your in-boxes will find you each well. Â As I am sure is true for each of you, our family has been journeying, learning and growing.
I’ve been reading the thought and heart provokingÂ The Pastor’s Wife by Sabina Wurmbrand lately. I highly recommend it if you’ve never taken a trip into a communist prison or lived in Rumania under the rule of Stalin. It will take you there. If you’ve never been separated from your devoted and loving spouse for fourteen years for the cause of loving Christ, you’ll remember this story. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to choose between allegiance to your God and your child’s unknown future without either of his parents, you’ll get a taste of what (some estimate to be as much as ) 3/4 of the Christian church experience around the world today.
Dare we tear our hearts over such literature? Here’s one more “if”…
If you’ve ever wanted to sit down with someone who understands the suffering you’ve been through and breaths faith and courage over you as she shares with startling vulnerability the grace she has received and is available to you and I today,…get. this. book.
There’s so much more I could say about it, but I’ll leave off for now with a quote from the book and perhaps over the coming days I’ll share bits more here and there. I just finished it yesterday and will profit from taking time to think over it some more.
“As the pastor’s wife, I have often told youngsters a story of the boy who stood on the shore and waved to a ship at sea. A man beside him said, ‘Don’t be silly. The steamer will not change it’s course because you wave.’ But the ship turned, came to shore and picked up the boy. From the bridge he shouted, ‘Sir, I’m not a fool. The captain is my father!’
We also know that he who steers the universe on its course is our Father and that He hears our prayers.” ~ Sabina Wurmbrand
Have you read anything inspiring lately? Care to share a quote in the comments? Many blessings on your new week!
