"Lord, I will follow You, but . .." Luke 9:61 When God tells you to do a thing that tests and opposes your common sense, you will come to what He wants, but turn back at the point of testing until you abandon to God by total surrender. Instead, you will say, “Yes, but, if I obey God, what about . . . ?”But If you are going to obey, He demands you risk what you believe by common sense. When you have faith in what He says, you find that He is consistent with common sense.(Oswald Chambers)
madamescherzo: Yesterday, my husband and his brother went canoeing along the Susquehanna River and came upon a group of Amish boys who’d taken their horses along an abandoned railroad line from Christiana to the opposite side of the county. They’d been trekking since midnight and were tired, thirsty and looking for a store and a way back. The battery in their GPS was dead. Rumspringa.
