Behind one of the huts was an old pipe connected to a water tank. In the pipe was a tiny hole from which drops of water fell one by one. At the place where they landed was the first growing thing she had seen in the desert. It was a beautiful little golden flower.
And I want to do it with joy in my heart. None of these sound like much fun, do they? Every time we feel pressure, and the heat is being turned up on our lives, God wants us to accept happily the trials we go through. The opposite is Murmuring and Complaining. Do you ever do that?
It is much easier to murmur and complain. Job — When He has tried me I shall come forth as pure gold! Help me to be Acceptance-With-Joy, and to trust that You are looking after me. You are making me into the person You want me to be. I want to be soft clay in Your hands. I want to be a precious stone, pure gold for You. Then one day, quite suddenly, they came to a path.
Even though you seem farther away than ever from the High Places, I will still come to you quickly if you call Me. Much-Afraid and her two helpers walked along the shores of the great sea for many days. She began to know the name of the place where she presently journeyed.
It was Loneliness.
Now the mountains were out of sight, and her home in the Valley was far, far away. There seemed to be nothing in the whole world except for the desert on one side and the endless, dreary sea on the other. Often an icy wind would blow, and the only sound was the lonely crying of sea gulls overhead.
In those days Much-Afraid never let go of the hands of her two helpers. It was amazing how swiftly they helped her along. It was also amazing how she walked now with hardly a limp. Somehow, something had happened to her in the desert. She was learning to accept with joy the path the Shepherd had for her.
Although she went with Sorrow and Suffering day after day beside the Sea of Loneliness, Much-Afraid felt a happiness in her heart. She even began to realize that the place was strangely beautiful. Weeping may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
As time passed they realized he 50 51 must not have been able to make her turn around and was now too proud to come back and admit that he had failed.
They decided they had to send others to help him, before Much-Afraid reached the High Places and was forever out of their reach. Spies were sent out to find Pride, and they brought back word that Much-Afraid was nowhere near the mountains, but far away on the shores of Loneliness.
This made her relatives very excited. They quickly agreed on who should go and help Pride bring Much-Afraid back to them. Resentment, Bitterness, and Self-Pity left right away. Have you ever met those three? Resentment is like Anger. He is even as strong as Hatred. His cousin, Bitterness, is a sarcastic, sour fellow. In fact, if you listen to him too much, his words act like poison to your spirit-man.
He holds grudges and never forgives. Self-Pity is someone who seems to be around everyone at some time. He tries to get you to feel sorry for yourself.
That is Self-Pity talking to you. You need to start thinking about the Lord and other people and quit worrying about yourself!
Those were the three characters who joined Pride. Off they went to the shores of Loneliness. However, her enemies soon discovered that this was not the same MuchAfraid they used to know. They could not get close to her because she kept so near to Sorrow and Suffering. All they could do was call out to her. Up on the High Places? Why do you let Him treat you like this? He promised to take you to the High Places, and here you are next to the desert!
You had better turn around and leave Him now, before He asks even more of you. He spoke so softly and in such a whimpering voice that Much-Afraid felt weak all over. You have been so willing and so obedient, but He keeps thinking up some new way to hurt you and cause such pain.
The word pain suddenly reminded Much-Afraid of the lessons she had learned in the pyramid. But she became more and more tired of listening to the voices of her enemies. It was getting harder to resist their whining, and she was getting weaker. Finally, Much-Afraid had enough. Perhaps you have been Impatient instead of Acceptance-With-Joy.
The Shepherd was right. She put her hand into His. You are my Shepherd. I will trust You and follow where You lead me.
It will help you remember your promise to wait patiently until I do what I have said I would do. She kept remembering to accept the path with joy, no matter what, and to trust the Shepherd.
Finally they arrived at a different place. It was a lovely country filled with fruit trees and hills. Everywhere she looked there were singing birds and blossoming flowers. She felt as though she had stepped out of winter and into spring! In a short while they came to the edge of some trees, and Much-Afraid gave a little cry of joy. There was the Shepherd, waiting to meet them! She ran toward Him as though she had wings on her feet. He just stood looking at her with a soft sort of smile.
Much-Afraid had a song in her heart as she walked among the fields and trees of that country. She continued on her happy journey for some time. One day they reached the top of one of the hills just as the sun was rising.
There, not far away, were the mountains! Much-Afraid thought she had never seen anything so beautiful. Finally after such a long time, the path that Much-Afraid and her two helpers traveled had turned toward the High Places! Much-Afraid fell on her knees and worshiped. It seemed to her at that moment that all the pain and all the troubles had been worthwhile.
It seemed to her, also, that even Sorrow and Suffering were smiling with her. Then Much-Afraid realized something else. She was beginning to understand the language spoken by these two sisters. What makes you feel impatient? Do you ever feel angry at God? These feelings happen to everyone.
Pride, Resentment, Bitterness, and Self-Pity talk to each one of us. Help me not to just look at what I see with my eyes. Teach me to walk by faith trusting You. Your ways are higher than mine. You will do what is right and good for me, though not always the way I think You should. Help me to fill my head and heart with Your words and listen to what You say! A perfect gift for all ages.

After my brother finished reading this book, he got down on his knees and sincerely prayed, "Good Shepherd, if You truly exist, I will give you my entire life, if only you make MY feet like "Little Miss Much-Afraid"'s and You allow me to walk on The High Places with You! I don't care what price I must pay, just allow me to walk in the heights with You, Jesus.
I'm not at all suggesting this will happen to anyone else! But in God's omniscience, He knew Jeff needed to be in what Jeff called "his cacoon of protection" from a very seriously sinful prior life! Jeff suffered for many months at first as he began to learn how to live as a quadraplegic, but he never once complained. He gave thanks to God for answering his prayer in this way. Jeff went on to graduate Liberty University.
Then he went out in his wheelchair-lift van to testify and preach. I know that at least one thousand souls were saved after hearing his testimony and seeing the deep, abiding JOY in his eyes and heart! He changed thousands of lives for the Kingdom of God. Perhaps you're looking for a purpose in this life. Or you may just want to read a good allegory of life in Christ Jesus. Whatever your motive, I am sure anyone of any age will enjoy this delightful classic. And this version adds pages of devotions and things to consider with each chapter.
I would give this book stars if I could! This book guarantees to delight! Verified download. IF, and that is a very big IF, you are in the right place, this book will speak to you on so many levels.
I have read it about 5 or 6 different times in my life - in for the first time, then had my 7th and 8th grade Sunday School students use this instead of their "assigned" books each kid "got it" and almost never missed coming to Sunday School!
I read it again many years later as a mommy to 5 year-old and 10 year-old girls during Lent. The 5 year old recognized her pride-fulness She is 21 now and recently expressed her fondness for this book.
If you download this and it does not resonate with you, may I suggest you place in on the shelf not too far away or out of sight and come back to it again another time? I find it helpful when I am fighting with myself and wanting my own way This is a wonderful story that is told in such a way that it reminded me of "The Pilgrim's Progress", by John Bunyan.
It is read by Nadia May, who brings the story even more to life.
I first learned of this story written by Hannah Hurnard by reading "No Compromise: I learned that this was one of Keiths' favorite stories, and now I can see why. Just like "The Pilgrim's Progress", by John Bunyan, Hannah tells a story of a Christians journey to the high place and the struggles that happen along the way.
I recommend this book both to young and old, I am 53 yrs. That is why I gave it 5 stars and I believe you won't regret downloading this book God bless, Brother Albert. Hardcover Verified download. A wonderful book for Christians, especially young Christians who must realize that their Christian walk can and usually will be a winding, uphill journey of sorts that is sometimes filled with unpleasant experiences, oftentimes fearful and intimidating to the natural part of us while, if worked at and conquered, has great potential for producing much spiritual growth, development and strength.
For those seeking comfort in another's symbolic treatment of the trials and testings Christians must sometimes endure and overcome to reach their spiritual goal, this is a great read. Changed my view on myself and God. I don't normally gravitate towards fictional stories, but I was recommended this book by a dear friend. And wow, this book has totally transformed my faith! Such an amazing story of Jesus' unconditional love for us; this book puts it in a whole new perspective.
