Building a Bridge

When engineers would bridge a stream, they often carry over a single thread.  Then strand is added to strand, until a foundation is laid for planks; and now the bold engineer finds safe footway, and walks from side to side.  So God takes from us some golden threaded pleasure, and stretches it hence to heaven; then He takes a child and then a friend.  Thus He bridges death, and teaches the thought of the most timid to find their way hither between the two spheres.

In this story, the Author is teaching us that God has a plan for all of us; but, just as the thread stretched across the river may seem strange at first, God, through his wisdom, shares with us his plan through his creation that He made and makes us to live and die to be with him forever in a new heaven and earth.  – Hentycrew

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."
