Stepping Out in Faith

  • Tuesday, February 10, 2015

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 ...

Elizabeth George (A Woman after God's Own Heart) also loves Christmas and all of the festivities that go with it!  But she reminds us that during this time it's easy for our priorities and our focus on the holiday to get out of line with what God wants for us.  

She encourages us not to forget what Christmas is really about -- that we received an incredible perfect gift from God -- his Son, Jesus, and that ...

Showing God's Love

Showing God's LoveYou've seen them... the people holding signs up needing money, food, and help of some sort.  I pass them all the time on the freeway entrance and exits.  They are in front of stores -- often with children, but so many are scams.  How do we know who really needs help and what we should do?

It bothered me that I passed by them and did nothing.   I began praying for them that if they were truly in need that God would provide (and I also pray for their salvation).  It's not that I don't want to help ...

Thanks in All Circumstances

  • Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Give thanksI had just finished reading I Thessalonians 5:18, "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus," and decided that I was really going to try and live this. 

So you know of course what happened next... a day full of frustrating circumstances, and I have to say I wasn't very thankful for them! 

Elizabeth George (A Woman after God's Own Heart) says that giving thanks in not only good but also in bad situations can be hard, but with God's help, it can be done. Through the grace ...

Contentment

  • Tuesday, April 22, 2014

content womanWhile reading my daily devotional "A Woman after God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George" her message, "Stop Complaining" really hit home with me. 

After praying about the message, the Lord showed me that instead of complaining, what I needed was a thankful heart.  He reminded me He was there working His will for me in everything -- good and bad.

Elizabeth quotes Philippians 4:11-13 where the apostle Paul writes, "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.  I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.  I have learned ...
