Come What May

against the stream“The true follower of Christ will not ask, “If I embrace this truth, what will it cost me?” Rather he will say, “This is truth. God help me to walk in it, let come what may!”

-A. W. Tozer

Have I not commanded you?

Be strong and courageous.

Do not be frightened,

and do not be dismayed,

for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

(Joshua 1:9)

    1. Especially when it feels like you are going against the stream. Thank God for His faithfulness!
      Thanks for commenting, Hazel. Blessings on your day! (Do you have snow in Alaska yet? It snowed on the lower mountains here yesterday.)

      1. Our first snow was about 10 days ago. It killed the flowers and melted. On this Monday we go snow again and all the roads were very icy. It has melted but winter is definitely coming soon. There were blizzard conditions less than 100 miles from here.The leaves are turning on the trees with some still green. Around here fall is very short and winters long. It’s good to go against the stream!
        You’re most welcome, Charis. Abundant blessings to you!

      2. This morning I was upset that the deer ate my geraniums again then I saw my car covered with heavy frost. I’m glad they enjoyed them before they died. It has been a marvelous summer with exceptionally beautiful weather. I need to remember to be more willing to give thanks for a great summer than complain about approaching winter. I may even get to the point of giving thanks for winter. Thank you, Lord, that winter kills off the bugs and that I have never seen a cockroach or a poisonous snake here.
        Blessings to you as well.

      3. We had a beautiful warm summer, also. Yes, no snakes although some people keep them as pets. I can relate to your deer eating your geraniums, one year I had a moose calf eating all my flowers off my porch. I caught him and scared him away before much damage
        was done. Winter is good and is our major feature here. Love the crunch of the snow and the beauty of white diamonds in the snow. Only let winter stay away until the second week of October! 🙂

      4. Go for it, Charis! Thanksgiving will have more meaning with your flower baskets blooming. I love the flowers but we had a hard frost that killed everything more than a week ago.I’m keeping one of my plants inside all winter.
