"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

APPEALING TO LITTLE JBR


My t. suggested another book for me to read which would minister easier to my little JBR than The Velveteen Woman called "Hinds' Feet On High Places" by Hannah Hurnard.

I am finding out by reading, and reading the book out loud, as that helps my attention span and to stay focus, that this book does indeed appeal to my little JBR.

Since I am in the early stages of reading, I will share what the back cover says for now:


"Hinds' Feet on High Places is one of Hannah Hurnard's best known and best loved books: a beautiful allegory dramatizing the yearning of God's children to be led to new heights of love, joy, and victory through difficult places with her two companions, Sorrow and Suffering. Learn how Much-Afraid overcomes her tormenting fears as she passes through many dangers and mounts at last to the High Places. There she gains a new name and returns to her valley of service, transformed by her union with the loving Shepherd."

Little JBR is excited to read this book.

To see how much a loving Shepherd loves and cares which in turn can be applied to little JBR. That the loving Shepherd will touch the deep pain of little JBR's heart and bring her forth into healing and freedom one day soon!

  9. This is an excellent book even though I never finished it many, many, many, many years ago. However, I stopped reading during the valley of death...not a good place. I think that I will read it again...all the way through. Thanks for reminding me of this.

    Blessings,
