Knowing and Trusting that God has a Plan for YOUR Life

Knowing and Trusting that God has a Plan for YOUR Life

I’ve prayed the prayer ‘God use me’ many times throughout my life. It’s a continual awareness of how personable I believe God is, that he has a plan for each one of us. I can get side-tracked in my faith if I start to look around and compare myself to others or try to copy what they’re doing. I’m sharing a story from my life that I hope will drive the point home that we all need to keep our eyes on Jesus and where he is leading us.

Praying a Prayer of Surrender When God Seems Silent

Praying a Prayer of Surrender When God Seems Silent

There have been many long years of unanswered prayer in my life. It’s the strangest journey to pray for something good, and hear nothing. I have prayed for healing, for kids, for peace… all noble requests. Yet many times, God seemed to be silent on the side-lines. THIS is where managing my thoughts comes in.

Faith: A Journey in the Same Direction

Faith: A Journey in the Same Direction

There are so many times in life where it’s just hard to see any light at the end of a tunnel. I recently used the phrase- a journey in the same direction- and it has haunted me ever since. It’s an expression of faith to keep going when life is hard, and to keep going after our dreams and goals when they seem to be taking quite a long time. I’d love to encourage you on your journey in the same direction, as we look for God and the surprising hope he can offer.
