Hinds Feet on High Place , a classic allegory of the Christian life ,
Is based on Habakkuk 3: 19 . The story follows the character Much Afraid

The Shepherd kindly replies , I could carry you all the way up the High Places

Justly but in His timing , In faith , Habakkkuk chose to trust the Lord , Even if the suffering
did not end , the prophet continued to be his strength .

Also use the most challenging of life’s journey to deepen our fellowship with Christ .

Trust You and continue to walk with you on this journey . Amen ❤️
