When We have to Wade through Trials

So I never thought I’d get a spiritual lesson out of one of Asher’s favourite books, but here we are. I’m talking about We’re Going on a Bear Hunt over at Missionary Mom’s Companion today.

River Eden


“We’re going on a bear hunt, we’re going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day! We’re not scared.
Uh-uh, a river! A deep cold river.
We can’t go over it, we can’t go under it,
Oh, no! We’ve got to go through it!”

These words have become all too familiar as I read my son’s favourite book to him. Every. Single. Day. Do you know the story? Children go on a hunt to find a bear, but they face various obstacles that they can’t master unless they go through them. The book was a Christmas gift for my son, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read the story since then.

But having to face those obstacles in We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a bit like our real lives.

Hop on over to Missionary Mom’s Companion to read the rest of it!
