Treasures In The Garden
From our church news letter yesterday:
Giving an insight into having Faith…….
Jesus walking on water and Peter having faith to follow:
and then doubt set in……..
In the middle of a dark winter’s night in a small farming community,
The 2- story home of a young family caught on fire.
Quickly , the family followed their well practiced emergency plan, and they made their way through the smoke- filled home to the front yard.
There the father counted headsand realised that their 5 year old was missing.
Suddenly he heard a wail and looked to see the boy at his bedroom window, crying and rubbing his eyes.
Knowing the danger of re-entering the burning building to rescue his son,
the father called” Jump, son! I’ll catch you!”
Between sobs, the boy responded to the familiar voice: “But i can’t see you Daddy!”
The fathered answered with great assurance:”No, son! You can’t see me,but I can see you! JUMP!”
At that the boy jumped into the inky smoky darkness and found himself cradled in his father’s loving arms- safe!
