The Time of Temptation and Distress Is No Time to Make Decisions

Very well said!

Learning To Be Full Of Grace And Truth.

It’s Fénelon Friday!

LETTER 27: The Time of Temptation and Distress Is No Time to Make Decisions

The overflowing distresses you are going through right now are like the rivers of water that run through the streets after a sudden storm. The only thing you can do is wait until the waters drain away. This is a time of great confusion for you, and nothing seems to make any sense. You are imagining things which aren’t true at all. But this is the ordinary reaction to great suffering. Even though you have such a keen mind, God is permitting mitting you to be blind to what lies immediately before you, and he is allowing you to think that you see clearly, when actually, you are only having spiritual mirages.

  1. dearest Jen, I read this and jumped to the blog you reblogged this from. I left this comment. Please read the article I linked to:

    Dear Dan,
    Hi, my name is Maria. I am a former Roman Catholic, am now a Reformed believer, and have a great interest in the Protestant Church in France. You may not realize this but François Fénelon was an enemy of the Reformed Christians in France and by coercion “reeducated” their children, separating them from their parents. He is not our friend and probably shouldn’t be quoted favorably. He was very winsome, wasn’t he? But please go here to read further if you’d like. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Oh, well spotted, Maria! I normally don’t read these. I forget how I came about it, but a few weeks ago, I thought: Hang on, isn’t he Catholic? Well done, you 🙂

  3. Jen, thanks for being gracious. There’s a history about me learning about this man. I can share later.
    In the Lord’s love,
    Maria
