Falling Into the Fire

There is a photo of a fireman in fire. But in a particular photo, it shows a fireman falling INTO the fire. Purposefully. I was told this is because of the type of fire. THIS fire was a gasoline fire, and the flames only exist on the SURFACE. By falling INTO the fire, things fare better for him, being under the fire.

Life can be like that. We see problems looming before us and we want to run. But we can’t. Like the elementary school book, we can’t go over it, can’t go around it, we must go thru it.

But it is by going THRU the trial that things will get better. So we, like the firefighter, put on our best armor of prayer, faith and hope and press on.
