Today’s Quote: “…you must be willing to follow Him through the paths of dryness…”

It is no hard matter to adhere to God while you are in the enjoyment of His comforts and consolations; but if you would prove your fidelity to Him, you must be willing to follow Him through the paths of dryness and desertion. The truth of a friend is not known while he is receiving favours and benefits from us; but if he remain faithful to us when we treat him with coldness and neglect, it will be a proof of the sincerity of his attachment.

    That’s probably why God spelled backwards is dog. A dog loves you when you give it all kinds of good attention, but it will still keep loving you even as you beat it, or have nothing to feed it, or abandon it.

    Love is a cord that cannot be broken no matter what kind landscape it is run across.
