Stories that encourage me to stand strong in my faith
During the first week in October we had the opportunity to go on the Scottish Reformation and Covenanting History tour.
Every day we left Airdrie and went to different sites, starting in St. Andrews where the first events of the Scottish Reformation occurred and ending in the mountains near Moffat, where 5,000 Covenanters held a conventicle where they sang Psalms that drowned out the sound of the nearby waterfalls.
Every place was special in some way, so when Jimmy asked where our favorite place was this week, I really couldn’t say.
It was a good week, filled with much learning, beautiful sights, and reminders of how we must remain faithful to God, no matter what comes against us.
The stories we have been learning have become real to me and are stories that I will not forget.
Though they are sometimes difficult to hear, or bring tears to my eyes to recall, they are stories that encourage me to stand strong in my faith as I remember those who have stood firm through greater difficulties than I have ever known.
