Waves of the Sea

commanded and raised stormy wind

I guess I am thinking a lot about the different landforms this week!  Ha!  I have talked about mountains, prairies, hikes through forests, and now I have some waves of the ocean for you.  Are you drawn to God’s creation or man’s creations?  There’s something to chew on…

Will you follow the path God has lined out for you?  Will you follow a path that is man-created and laid out?  How does the Bible instruct us to live vs. how man instructs us?  Will man command and raise the winds to help us?  Or will he leave us sinking.  Or leave us high…and dry.

We do need to go to the Bible.  We do need to look ahead at what God has planned.  We do have to trust. No matter what the plans of man cannot compete with what God is capable of doing in our lives.  I know which one I will try to trust.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

Psalm 118:24 Be Glad and Rejoice by Nicole Plymesser Nelson

Enjoy your day today!  In all our laboring days may we find God, be glad for the labors He gives us–the opportunities to work with others and be His hands and feet in all we do.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

Finding Strength and Courage

Be strong in Courage Psalm 31:24 by Nicole Plymesser Nelson

Be Strong

Take Courage

Those can be easy things to say.  They can be hard to believe and do sometimes.  Right?

I know that Satan will work his hardest against us when we are closest to God–to serving Him, loving Him, living IN Him.  And last week several things popped up that shook me, hard.  That made me wonder if I am parenting correctly and if I am doing the right thing with this ministry–or do I need to work doing something that will support my family–help us clear some debt and pay for insurance.  Tricky tricky stuff.

But several things happened to help strengthen me:

I prayed directly to God for a bubble of protection and gave Him one worry completely.  And it WORKED.  I felt immediate peace and I knew that He was large and in charge.  I could give it up.

As for the financial situation, no answers yet.  But, He made it evident through several people that I am supposed to be creating and spreading my art.  That it is touching people and leading them to Him and His community.  I am doing what He wants.

I do feel like God is going to provide.  I don’t know how.  But I feel it.  I feel courage in my heart.  I feel strength in the hope of my Savior.

My hope is that you are able to find strength and courage in your heart today.  I pray that God will fill each of you with a sense of peace and love that goes beyond understanding.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
