The narrator, Landon Carter, remembers his life 40 years earlier, when he was a young man of 17, living in the same small North Carolina town, which has changed substantially.
Since, although I can express them in words, I do not have the works and virtues they imply which is what pleases you, O my Lord, more than the words and wisdom they containmay others, perhaps stirred by them, go forward in your service and love-in which I am wanting.
I will thereby find consolation, that these sayings be an occasion for your finding in others the things that I lack. Lord, you love discretion, you love light, you love love; these three you love above the other operations of the soul. Hence these will be sayings of discretion for the wayfarer, of light for the way, and of love in the wayfaring.
May there be nothing of worldly rhetoric in them or the long-winded and dry eloquence of weak and artificial human wisdom, which never pleases you. Let us speak to the heart words bathed in sweetness and love that do indeed please you, removing obstacles and stumbling blocks from the paths of many souls who unknowingly trip and unconsciously walk in the path of error-poor souls who think they are right in what concerns the following of your beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in becoming like him, imitating his life, actions, and virtues, and the form of his nakedness and purity of spirit.
Father of mercies, come to our aid, for without you, Lord, we can do nothing. The Lord has always revealed to mortals the treasures of his wisdom and his spirit, but now that the face of evil bares itself more and more, so does the Lord bare his treasures more.
O Lord, my God, who will seek you with simple and pure love, and not find that you are all one can desire, for you show yourself first and go out to meet those who seek you?
Though the path is plain and smooth for people of good will, those who walk it will not travel far, and will do so only with difficulty if they do not have good feet, courage, and tenacity of spirit.
It is better to be burdened and in company with the strong than to be unburdened and with the weak. When you are burdened you are close to God, your strength, who abides with the afflicted.
When you are relieved of the burden you are close to yourself, your own weakness; for virtue and strength of soul grow and are confirmed in the trials of patience. He who wants to stand alone without the support of a master and guide, will be like the tree that stands alone in a field without a proprietor.
No matter how much the tree bears, passers-by will pick the fruit before it ripens. A tree that is cultivated and guarded through the care of its owner produces its fruit at the expected time.
The virtuous soul that is alone and without a master, is like a lone burning coal; it will grow colder rather than hotter. He who falls alone remains alone in his fall, and he values his soul little since he entrusts it to himself alone.
If you do not fear falling alone, how do you presume that you will rise up alone? Consider how much more can be accomplished by two together than by one alone. He who falls while heavily laden will find it difficult to rise under the burden. The blind man who falls will not get up alone in his blindness, and if he does, he will take the wrong road.
God desires the least degree of purity of conscience in you more than all the works you can perform. God desires the least degree of obedience and submissiveness more than all those services you think of rendering Him.
God values in you an inclination to aridity and suffering for love of Him more than all possible consolations, spiritual visions, and meditations. Deny your desires and you will find what your heart longs for.
For how do you know if any desire of yours is according to God? O sweetest love of God, so little known, he who has found its veins is at rest! Since a double measure of bitterness must follow the doing of your own will, do not do it even though you remain in single bitterness.
The soul that carries within itself the least appetite for worldly things bears more unseemliness and impurity in its journey to God than if it were troubled by all the hideous and annoying temptations and darknesses describable; for, so long as it does not consent to these, a soul thus tempted can approach God confidently, by doing the will of His majesty, Who proclaims: Come to Me all you who labor and are heavily burdened and I will refresh you.
The person who in aridity and trial submits to the dictates of his reason is more pleasing to God than he who does everything with consolation, yet fails in this submission.

Read A walk to remember. Prologue from the story Nicholas Sparks - A walk to remember by Fayziwka99 with reads. романы, nicholassparks. A Walk to Remember. The First Fatal Mistake - Before Logos And The Source Of The Gospel: Jesus taught that there is One Teacher that all sincere believers must seek out and learn from. The word prologue literally means: Before Logos-- and when properly understood, Christians are being denied access to the (Indwelling) Logos because the Pagan Church of 4 th Century Rome threw away the Key of Knowledge -- .
God is more pleased by one work, however small, done secretly, without desire that it be known, than a thousand done with desire that men know of them. The person who works for God with purest love not only cares nothing about whether men see him, but does not even seek that God Himself know of them.
Such a person would not cease to render God the same services, with the same joy and purity of love, even if God were never to know of them. He who does a pure and whole work for God merits a whole kingdom. A bird caught in birdlime has a two fold task: And he who satisfies his appetite suffers in a twofold way: He who does not allow his appetites to carry him away will soar in his spirit as swiftly as the bird that lacks no feathers.
The fly that clings to honey hinders its flights, and the soul that allows itself attachment to spiritual sweetness hinders its own liberty and contemplation. Withdraw from creatures if you desire to preserve, clear and simple in your soul, the image of God.
Empty your spirit and withdraw far from them and you will walk in divine lights, for God is not like creatures. And if it is that you are waiting for my good works so as to hear my prayer through their means, grant them to me, and work them for me, and the sufferings You desire to accept, and let it be done.A Walk To Remember |Prologue| Phoebe S.C.
