TAKE THE LEAP!!

The New Year is upon us!

I hear the Lord calling us to a deeper faith…a stronger faith…a focused faith.

We are being called to take a leap of faith! We are being propelled by the power of the Holy Spirit to leave our “comfort zone” and make a leap into our future!

I see the Lord lifting us up and above those things that would hold us down, The wind of the Holy Spirit will carry us over those places that seem impossible to navigate.

Don’t look down…don’t focus on your ability to make the jump! Look up!! Focus on the Lord and HIS ability!

Get ready!! Focus!! Breathe deeply and let the breath of God fill your lungs!!

TAKE THE LEAP!!

Thankfulness!

May we overflow with thankfulness!!  As we live for Him, focused on Him, rooted and built up in Him – we will indeed find ourselves strengthened in our faith as He lives through us – transforming us to be more and more like Him!!

[vision].  I see a tree (us) with strong roots growing into rich, life-giving soil (Jesus).  I see healthy, strong, beautiful fruit (fruit of the Spirit) covering the tree.

May others be drawn to Jesus by the fruit that is evident in our lives!

I am THANKFUL!!!

Fast Food Prayer

I was in a fast food restaurant for lunch with my friends after Bible Study. As I walked in the door, I saw one of the staff standing by a supply closet. I said, “Hi, how are you doing?” Something I say to many people without really thinking about it.

My eyes were looking into his as I asked my question. I normally would have continued walking as I heard his response, “Fine.”

But, our eyes were locked…I couldn’t look away…and the Lord wasn’t allowing me to continue walking.

I found myself walking towards him and I saw the faint look of surprise as he saw me coming.

I found myself saying, “How are you really doing? Is there something I can pray with you about?”

“Yes,” he said, “You can pray for my eyes.”

So, without asking any details, I just let the Lord lead me in praying for his eyes to be healed.

I’m so thankful that the Lord made me stop and meet this man at his point of need!

Give me more opportunities, Lord, for Your glory!!
