Things are looking up...


While you are waiting for a rescue
  Trust God, no matter what!

I would love to expound on the final letter of the acronym, HOST:

H for humility
O for obedience
S for surrender
T for trust

But in this case, a simple picture is worth the thousand words it may take to explain the unique opportunities  we mortals are given to exercise trust,.. when things heat up around us.

I do have one question: where was Sara when Isaac was getting ready to burn in his britches???  Was it too contrary to any mother's instincts for her to witness this mutilation?  Yet a few years or centuries later, a much younger Jewish mother was asked to do the same...and she said ok.  With that yes, she said no to Hell's grip, freeing her Son to  Cross us  over to Heaven. She loved our God with her will, not only with the sentiment of  a mother bonded to her child -in a human way, but in a tough love, real love - bigger than this life - way.
