God will send a strong message

Sunday 1st March
“At times God will send us a strong sense of his presence, a desire to be with him, the ability to withstand temptations with ease. But he never allows this state of affairs to lost long. Sooner or later He withdraws, if not in fact, at least from their conscious experience, all those supports and incentives. He leaves the creature to stand up on its own legs—to carry out from the will alone duties which have lost all relish. It is during such trough periods, much more than during the peak periods, that it is growing into the sort of creature He wants it to be” C.S. Lewis
