The Christian Traveler

From “Divine Breathings”  A pious soul searching after Christ.

By Thomas Sherman

You can read it in it’s entirety here: http://www.gracegems.org/C/Sherman_divine_breathings.htm

“These all confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” Hebrews 11:13

A black cloud causes the traveler to quicken his pace, and hasten towards his home; whereas a sunny day, tempts him to idle away his time; and a pleasant way tends to steal away his affections while he surveys the country.

However others may think of it—yet I consider it a mercy, that occasionally some clouds interpose my sun, and often so that my troubles eclipse my comforts. For I perceive that if I should find too much friendship in my inn, or in my pilgrimage—that I would soon forget my Father’s house and my glorious eternal inheritance.

“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” 1 Peter 2:1

  1. Beautiful! How true it is that more lessons are learned when the clouds are overhead than when our lives are full of comforts and sunshine. I’m praying more and more for God’s grace to make the most of those times of darkness. May He be glorified. Thank you for the encouragement, Teresa!

  2. “For I perceive that if I should find too much friendship in my inn, or in my pilgrimage—that I would soon forget my Father’s house and my glorious eternal inheritance.” My goodness, I could not have said it better! This is a must keep for rainy days! Thank you for that excellent quote and for the link! Blessings!
