We Walk By Faith

Post  Fenny West on Mon 12 Nov 2007, 8:01 pm

This is a rite of passage of a certain culture but lets borrow from it

His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him Alone.
He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it.

He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.
He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his O own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of Noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him. Maybe even some human might do him harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!
Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his
blindfold It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the
stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.
We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, our Heavenly Father is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

If you liked this story, pass it on. If not, you took off your
blindfold before dawn..
Moral of the story? Just because you can't see God, doesn't mean He is not there.

This is a nice message and I liked it a lot. The story is beautifully said and yes we can relate it to our faith. I would only add one verse to your story.

I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

God bless you and your family
