Uncontaminated Trust

“The basic premise of biblical trust is the conviction that God wants 
us to grow, to unfold, and to experience fullness of life
However, this kind of trust is acquired only gradually  and most often 
through a series of crisis and trials.
~Brennan Manning in Ruthless Trust~

I dare you.

There comes a point on the journey where you have the option to either give up or keep pressing. The enemy of our soul is doing everything he can to get us to quit.
I choose to press on. There is too much at stake to give up. My destiny is on the line. I am going after it. Despite rejection and abandonment. Despite failure and sickness, loneliness and insecurities. I dare you keep going. I have a feeling that the view on the other side of the mountain will be well worth the difficult climb.
