A Closer Walk

20180524_183737

A closer walk is not always on the easy trail My God,

but I will do my best

not to stumble,

as I receive strength

through Your words

and courage

through prayer.

 

Note: I will be here on a reduced level for the next couple of weeks, due to my wife being diagnosed with cancer – again. I hope to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

We appreciate your prayers!

A Walk of Faith

20171018_145700

A walk of faith is never marching blindly, into the scorching sun

instead a strengthening

of our hearts, our legs

in the steep mountain trails

courage for floods

taking over the valley

a quiet peace of knowing

with confidence walking

our pathways given,

an assurance really

in trusting the One

Who made us all.

He Delivered Me

20170916_123024

“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered

in shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him…..”

Psalm 34: 4-6a

Have you ever sought the Lord, and received an answer to your prayers? There is something amazing, and special, about God working in our hearts and lives.

Ok, now my face has not been radiant lately, how about yours? Is this just symbolic or a way of speaking? I’m not sure, but faith does give us a boost doesn’t it?

And when we have faith, there is a steady walking with him, and a distinct lack of shame, why is that? Because when we are faith walking or walking in faith, we ask forgiveness, and we keep moving forward!

There is absolutely no reason to be afraid. Hallelujah!

And I love how this portion ends. I called out to him – and He heard me. Awesome!

Heavenly Father thank you that you hear us when we call out to you! Thank you for answering our prayers. Keep us walking in faith, and focused. Hallelujah!

quote from the NIV Bible

The Breath of Life

20170628_140600

You were created, made, shaped, formed, and breathed into – with the breath of life. You were never a random chance.

You were always a great idea from God, and your lineage is ancient, going back to the first people, ever made.

And your lineage includes a line of faith walkers. Father Abraham blazed a trail for you to follow. Keep walking…….seeking His light.

 

Have a blessed, healthy and faith filled, 2018!

I wish you peace.

Walking with You

100_1584As the evening sky turns a darker blue,

I’m blessed my God, that I can walk with You.

Direct my prayers tonight, and strengthen me.

Forgive me for being so cynical,

bring peace into the circumstances

I cannot control.

I trust in You, Lord God Almighty.

I’m so glad

that I can walk with you.

Amen.
