Another Step In The Right Direction


     Some might say that fear encompasses the first step, after that moment it's just a matter of diligence and courageous living. I agree, the fear is in the unknown, the "what ifs" of our imagination. We fill our minds with "what ifs" and God encourages us to put all that aside and fill it with "By Faith" now the amazing thing about faith is this, the bible speaks of it in this beautiful description

1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1

That verse alone is so powerful and encouraging because it speaks of an assurance of what we do not see! God establishes His purpose in our lives and has solidified His plans and by these precious words we know that what God establishes, He finishes. Our job is to simply walk in it, pray in it, live in it and trust that God who is perfect in every way, who is deeply passionate about His children, the ones He loves with an uncompromising devoted love that never fails, that never tires, that never becomes weary. That is the God we serve and His promises are eternal and perfect and what He has started in you, He will finish.

Philippians 1:6

 6And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

For The Call


     Today is one of those days, the kind of day that when you wake up you just feel thankful. You wake up and you realize that God in all His wonder and grace, somehow made your life amazing not by what you can do but rather what God can do in it. A moment comes and goes without distinction sometimes but when there is love it soars through the skies of joy and when we suffer pain or loss we drudge through the mud and mire of hurt. It's inevitable, change is always happening but it's when we are in our darkest moments that we see an even greater light of hope, it's because of it's sheer brilliance when in darkness we wander that it becomes so precious, so paramount, so inspiring that it leaves an indelible mark that can spur us onward and upward.
     When I woke up this morning I had that very feeling, that type of praise to a God of wonder and absolute faithfulness. I had realized that through my stroke, my learning how to read, write, walk and talk that God made that mark, that profound statement in my soul that said "I will never leave you or forsake you!" and that is what He did. He prevailed over my suffering, He conquered over my doubts, He triumphantly showed is everlasting love over my hurts and pains and today I am doing things that once were deemed impossible because I have a God of all possibilities.
     No matter what you face you can face it as long as God is the rock by which you stand or crawl or what have you, you are not alone and on His strong promises you are victorious.
