Dare to Begin to be Happy

Been reading a lot of books this season. One of them is Hannah Hurnard’s Hinds’ Feet on High Places. Here’s one particular passage that is so fit for my season:

“It was then that Much-Afraid took courage to ask him something which she had never dared ask him before. With her hand held in his she said, ‘My Lord, may I ask one thing? Is the time at last soon coming when you will fulfill the promise that you gave me?’

“He said very gently, yet with great joy, ‘Yes — the time is not long now. Dare to begin to be happy. If you will go forward in the way before you, you will soon receive the promise, and I will give you your heart’s desire. It is not long now, Much-Afraid.

“So they stood in the mist-filled wood, she trembling with hope and unable to say a word, worshipping and wondering if she had seen a vision, or if this thing had really happened…”

Hannah Hurnard, Hinds’ Feet on High Places (p. 194)
