Big and Little Things

Over the past week, in our home, illness has been taking its toll.

But now I am back with ‘Illustrations of Providence!’

This week’s post is rather short, but there is a lot we can get out of this post about John Newton.

_______________

“Nothing was more remarkable,” says the biographer of Mr. Newton, “than his constant habit of regarding the hand of God in every event, however trivial it might appear to others.  On every occasion, in the concerns of every hour, he ‘walked with God.’  In walking to his church he would say, ‘The way of a man is not in himself, nor can he conceive what belongs to a single step.  A man made a smoke on the seashore; at the same time a ship passed, which was thereby brought to, and afterwards brought me to England.’ ”

In thinking about this:  How did this apply to John Newton’s life?  What are some ways you can walk with the Lord?

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."

    I believe one way we can walk with the Lord is by reading His word daily for our instruction.
