A young girl, unaccustomed to traveling, was taking a train ride through the country & it happened that in the course of the day her train was obliged to cross two branches of a river & several wide streams.

The water seen in advance always awakened doubts & fears in the child. She did not understand how it could safely be crossed. As they drew near the river, however, a bridge appeared & furnished a way over.

Two or three times the experience was repeated & finally the child leaned back with a long breath of relief & confidence. “Somebody has put bridges for us all the way!” she said in trusting content.

That is life. We fear so many evils, so many troubles look dark ahead, so many difficulties seen insurmountable as they loom before us; but as we advance we find that there is a way through them.

God has built bridges for us all the way. - American Messenger, (

Job 11:16 (CEV): “Your troubles will go away like water beneath a bridge.”

Psalms 144:2 (GNB) says: “He is my protector and defender, my shelter and savior, in whom I trust for safety...”

“Faith becomes a bridge between where I am and where I want to go - it is a substance.” - T.D. Jakes.
