The Holy Archer

This is what inspired my doodle today,

Perseverance means more than endurance–more than simply holding on until the end.  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, but our Lord continues to stretch and strain, and every once in a while the saint says, “I can’t take any more.”  Yet God pays no attention; He goes on stretching until His purpose is in sight, and then He lets the arrow fly.  Entrust yourself to God’s hands. . . .Faith is the supreme effort of your life–throwing yourself with abandon and total confidence upon God [for He is Holy Love].  —Oswald Chambers

Let it go--

Let it go–God’s got you in His bow, surrounded by His will and aimed at His purpose–

A good word–think about it in the context of your life and faith–that’s what I’ll be doing today.  Happy Friday!!
