An interesting read ~

Hinds’ Feet on High Places  DSCF9734

Author:  Hannah Hurnard

“The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places”  Habakkuk 3:19

This was really hard for me to get into, but well worth the reading.  The main character is Much-Afraid.  She is led on a journey of growth and discovery by the Chief Shepherd.   Her companions Suffering and Sorrow help her through the valleys, along the Sea of Loneliness and to the mountains.   Much-Afraid learns much while facing her enemies of Craven Fear, Pride, Resentment, Bitterness, and Self Pity.

A beautiful allegory demonstrating the desire of God’s children to be led to new heights of love, joy and victory.     I found it very easy to identify with Much-Afraid…and recognized her enemies and limitations.   Her journey is anything but easy.  Brings home the point that becoming a Christian doesn’t mean we won’t encounter problems.   Doesn’t mean life will be easy.   We always have to be on guard, girded in the total armor of God.   As Much-Afraid’s journey shows, we cannot ignore the Devil’s insidious ways if we want to grow in our walk with God.

Thank you, Betty for sending this book my way!
