A precious friend sent me this picture 
that fits so well with my last post.  


We serve a faithful God.  In His Word He says,

 There hath no temptation taken you 
but such as is common to man: but 
God is faithful
who will not suffer you to be tempted 
above that ye are able; 
but will with the temptation also 
make a way to escape, 
that ye may be able to bear it. 
1 Corinthians 10:13 

He also tells us to be faithful and promises us a reward.

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: 
behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, 
that ye may be tried; 
and ye shall have tribulation ten days: 
be thou faithful 
unto death, and I will  give thee a crown of life.
Revelation 2:10  

This picture also brings to mind a song I heard long ago. 

Hold on a little longer
Hold on a little stronger
The testings of the Lord are pure gold.
He'll take you through the fire
He'll burn out the dross and mire
Hold on a little longer, Hold on.

  6. I was reading my devotional by J.C.Ryle this morning and he wrote about the wisdom of asking God each day for an increase of our faith..... A lovely post and wonderful images to fix our focus.

  7. Do you happen to have the words to the rest of the song (Hold on a little longer...)? I can't find them and can't make them out on the fuzzy recording I have.

    1. I had them on an old recording of Lester Roloff's. I will see if I still have it somewhere, but I am not sure that I do. Thanks for asking.

  8. Here are the words:

    Hold on a Little Longer


    You took the hand of Jesus
    Stepped out upon His promise
    Yet it seems you have trusted in vain.
    The answer you have prayed for
    It’s on its way and paid for
    Hold on a little longer, Hold on.

    Chorus
    Hold on a little longer
    Hold on a little stronger
    The testings of the Lord are pure gold.
    He’ll take you through the fire
    He’ll burn out the dross and mire
    Hold on a little longer, Hold on.

    You’re watching for His coming
    You’re wondering why He’s waiting
    Hold on a little longer, Hold on.
    Those clouds will soon be bursting
    The Son of God descending
    Hold on a little longer, Hold on.
