Great Is God's Faithfulness

stack of love wooden blocksWith school around the corner, my mind is shifting into “school mode.” After reading a post by Brenda @ Becoming His Tapestry, I started thinking about our “intruder drill.”

I will always remember the first drill we practiced. The teacher sat down with the class and talked about what we needed to do if a person came into our school who wanted to hurt us. She told us our safe place was under the large semi-circle table in the corner of the room and to be very quiet so they could not find us.

At the appointed time, the Principal announced the code alerting us that an intruder was in our building. The children calmly and quietly walked to the safe place and hid under the table while the teacher and I turned off our lights, locked and barricaded the door. Once the teacher and I joined the children…

“Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah‬ ‭48:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

I want to start off the first promise of these series of God’s promises with the above verse (in an effort to help with my and maybe your struggle with spiritual amnesia).

It is a strange verse to use when introducing the promises of God but I feel it incumbent upon me to not sugar coat what we face in our day to day life.
