Stepping Out in Faith

Walking out in faithWe know God wants us to step out in faith, but I have to admit my doubts often step in.  I wonder if I'm really hearing God correctly, and if this decision will turn out to be a wrong choice I'll regret. 

I was reading Elizabeth George's "A Woman after God's Own Heart Devotional" and read a story about Rebekah.  Elizabeth writes, "When Rebekah was asked to travel to a faraway place to become the wife if Isaac, her words were, "I will go" (Genesis 24:58).  "I will go...with a stranger."  "I will go ...

Hymns For A New Perspective

One of my favorite movies to watch with my youngest is Soul Surfer.  There's a particular scene about perspective which is a standout for both of us.
