Walking with Much-Afraid

“Oh, no” she cried “You can’t mean it. You said if I would trust you you would bring me to the High Places, and that path leads right away from them. It contradict all that you promised.”

“No,” said the Shepherd, “it is not a contradiction only postponement for the best to become possible.”
Hinds Feet on High Places, Chapter Detour through the Desert

A small sharing with B prompted her to remember about Much-Afraid building her first altar and surrendering her will. It has been forever since I first read Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard so I popped onto the Kindle store and bought it for $1.99.

From the first chapter, I have been walking hand-in-hand with Much-Afraid on her journey. Where I find myself in my struggles theses days seems so similar to Much-Afraid – learning to trust the Shepherd, while hearing his loving words spoken over her.

Usually finding myself speeding through books with only a “Hmm..” has changed to me finding tears in my eyes and a prayer on my lips. Walking through Egypt is not easy, but may I come out refined and looking at the Shepherd in “Acceptance-with-Joy.”

About Traveling Mosaic

I'm on a journey in this world, hence the "Traveling" part of the name. My life is also made up of pieces that, when the Master completes it, will be a beautiful Masterpiece, hence "Mosaic."
