When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
As we continue to follow the lords word, we must stay strong when it doesn't seem like we can make it. The road to the promise land isn't the easiest and never will be. When something seems impossible remember with God anything is possible. We normally turn around to take our own path because we get scared to leap. But leaping is what God wants you to do so we can build a stronger faith that he will catch us. Most of us are scared to fail because of the unknown that comes after failure. Many years of my life I hated to fail and tried to do everything possible to not fail. But now as I sit here and think back I failed at most things simply because I never finished what I had started. I don't regret it because for me to teach my kids and people around me to be better and do better. I personally had to get thrown in the fire. This quote comes to mind for me because all the years I was sitting in the fire, I am now walking out of it with no burns in my heart and soul. I'm a strong believer in everything happens for a reason. The issue that comes with believing in that. Most of the times we don't realize the person we are growing into until after the smoke clears. If we don't learn to put God first in every decision we make. We may end up sitting in the fire for longer than we need to be. May God bless and always remember to smile. We don't know what anyone really going through. So instead of being negative around others be positive. Kind words and a smile can go long ways with a person that is sitting in their own fire
