Don’t Say HOW, Say I AM YOURS!

WHAT IS FAITH?

 

When you hold a balloon in the palm of your hand it is a tiny small thing. Seems unlikely that if I toss it from my bedroom window that it could drench my kid sisters with water, yet when used, that balloon becomes “enough” to serve my purpose . . . faith is like that.

 

I find myself praying for more faith yet last night when the question “what is faith” was asked at study group, the Spirit spoke to me saying “Faith is trust in action.” Like that small balloon, my small bit of faith “is enough” for Jesus to use for His purpose . . . if I trust Him. Martha L Shaw

Which is my Anchor?

December 22, 2016

Someone says “ride with me!”

With a delighted blend of calm and joy,

I join him and

The coaster rises and drops

Then rises again!

See my excited smile!

Another day

A voice in my soul says

“come” and points to the boat and a fisherman.

My thoughts of “but isn’t that Him?”

Don’t calm my fear

As with shaking legs

I head for the boat and grab a net

And with no joy

I listen for a storm.

2 Corinthians 8:16-18

Titus Sent to Receive the Collection

16 Thanks be to God, who put into the heart of Titus the same concern I have for you. 17 For Titus not only welcomed our appeal, but he is coming to you with much enthusiasm enthusiasm and on his own initiative. 18 And we are sending along with him the brother who is praised by all the churches for his service to the gospel.

5 things I’ve learned since the Lord healed me 2 years ago

December 17, 2016

Our Lord is an awesome God!

Walking Together in God's Promises

Keith and Karen at the Taj Mahal. Impossible with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Psalm 103:1-5

In the fall of 2010, I was at the end of my hope. I was on reduced work; my doctor was trying to get me to agree to go on disability, and he had recommended that I needed to think about resigning from my job. I knew that God had work for me to do in my current job, and I clung to that knowledge.

Yet…
