So the journey is long and unsettled and the doubts are large and looming. Fear lurks in the little corners of your world, nipping joy in the bud or maybe they aggressively approach without warning, sideswiping you blindfolded if they fail to hit head on! Yet, here you sit on another day of trying to get it together ~ making decisions and hoping for right ones. Friends are like Job’s friends, probably best if they would remain silent or at least offer encouragement. It seems like you just dealt with “that” and now “this.” World news is anything but good and your news? well ~ let’s just say you could do with a little bit better deal than what was just dealt! Where on this whole, wide earth is life going and where is it taking you?

He only allows it to make your beautiful soul more beautiful and more strong and more graced and more faithed and more steady for still ~ the journey ahead. He hasn’t promised it easy but just to be in it with you and guide your way. So those decisions you need to make ~ just ask Him to lead and be obedient to follow! Remember the same God that spoke peace and calmed the wild waters and stilled the sea speaks peace into your frightening moments and uneasiness to calm and soothe your soul and smooth the trouble! So beautiful you ~ take heart and let God take control of this moment, the next, the next and the day ahead.

Mark 4: 39
“When Jesus woke up He rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence, be still.” Suddenly the wind stopped and there was a great calm.”

So have faith today and faith your fear. Trust in the One who has authority over the wind and the waves and has you and has your stuff and has your back and has you covered. There’s hope there and peace there for those in need

Faith Enough

So when your faith doesn’t seem to be enough to move God’s hand into action, and when it seems that He turns a cold shoulder to your request, maybe it’s not that you lack faith at all, but just that your timing is a bit off. God’s timing is precise for exquisite perfection right down to the mi nut details. Each of His works are a masterpiece. His ways far beyond our thinking. Every little detail is well planned and brilliantly laid out for the very best outcome. His engineering skills are the top of the top of the line because He creates from nothing; In His holy perfection He can’t make a mistake, so trust Him to get the job done in just the right time and in just the right way. So when it seems your prayers don’t measure up to move the hand of God into action ~ just rest your weary mind and remember his faithfulness in the past. Your final chapter isn’t finished yet and most likely there’s a whole heap of good stuff going on behind the scenes that you know nothing of, and couldn’t orchestrate if you tried.

Persevere in consistent, faithful prayer for His will to be done and just leave it with Him.

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

The Faith ~ Grace Journey

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

Sometimes we just try too hard to do it right in this life ~ to make the mark and to succeed before God. God says we don’t have to do that! It’s not about the good we do or the bad we don’t do! We don’t have to try so hard because it isn’t about us and how good or bad we’ve been, but rather how can we glorify God in our living “now” before Him! “Living For Him is evidence of our “Faith in Him”! It’s about His grace covering us when we don’t. Has His forgiveness made a difference in your life? Have you met Him at the cross, where mercy and justice meet? Have you taken care of that crucial request and that awesome opportunity for the good of your own soul? Have you believed His words and accepted His Salvation plan for your life? That’s your beginning! From there it’s a journey onward; the ‘journey’ into spiritual maturity of renewed heart and mind only begin at the moment of salvation! It’s not an instant growth pattern and it’s not the same for everyone. It takes time for the baggage to drop and Growth to happen and God’s grace is there to cover the slip ups, the baggage that we hang on to and the missed marks that we don’t have to strive for. We can never make up for all of those and He knows that! Our success is measured not by what we do or don’t do, but by allowing God’s grace to cover the faults as we persevere in this
“Faith” / “Grace” journey … Even when… Even if… Even though… ♥ ♥ ♥

Ephesians 2:8-9

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

Little Faith, Big Faith

What impossibility hangs heavy over you today? Oh we all have our storms that rage and our mountains that we see way off in the distance as we try to muster courage to face them. We can live in doubt, fear or perhaps denial but sooner or later we reach them or they catch up with us and we know that now is the time that we must begin our steep accent or our walk on the water. You can do it, but not alone. If you go it alone, you set yourself up for mishap and misfortune and we’ve all been there at some point to know it’s not worth it! Yet, we forget who God really is in these crucial moments and like Peter walking on the water, we become fearful and take our eyes off of Christ! We look away from Him, into the impossibilities of the challenge that we face and so we begin to sink. As Peter was going down, he cried out to the Lord in Matthew 13:30, “Lord, save me! The Lord answered him in 31, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Then He took his hand and caught him.

Your storm might seem impossible, but God is faithful and you can trust Him to catch you. You can trust Him to get you through. I don’t know what you face today but stay focused on Christ, climbing the mountain! Remain calm, with eyes on Him, while walking on the water!
