Anyhow, as I was throwing things, I found a pile of old journals. I'm one of those people that doesn't typically keep them after a few years have gone by. This one, however, was a keeper. I recognized the year and I knew that everything poured out onto paper in that journal needed to be saved.
I was in trouble the first hour of that day. (That's a whole other story.)
I wrote an entire quote from Oswald Chambers in My Utmost for His Highest. (You know, before I starred, circled and highlighted it.) It read, "Patience is more than endurance. A saint's life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and he stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says, "I cannot stand anymore." God does not heed, He goes on stretching til His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly...Faith is the heroic effort of your life; you fling yourself in reckless confidence on God."
Don't you love the visual picture of that?
