Saturday Steps of Faith

Steps of Faith

Thanks Lisa for this awesome opportunity to focus on what we are believing God for.

I am believing God for continuing to show himself mighty in my life. I desire nothing more than to draw closer and closer to Him. The more I learn, the more I desire to know. The more I feel Him, the more I desire to reach up. The more I see His hand at work, the more I want to give Him praise.

There are days when I just cry out to Him because I want to 'hear' Him speak to me. It's like I just need that affirmation from Him that I am His. I almost feel desperate for a Word. But then that still small voice reminds me that I am His because of my faith. I have to know He is there, even when I can't always feel it. Then when I settle my spirit down.. when I focus on what I DO know... He speaks to my heart.

I am believing God....

"For your Word has given me life." Psalm 119:50b

When we seek Him, we will find Him. I'm believing God with you for a Word. Lord settle our hearts and help us to hear.
Blessings - Lisa

I can so relate to that desperate desire to hear Him and feel Him with you. Makes me feel good just thinking about being close with Him.

I thought I'd drop by and visit you today! Am so glad I did. I agree with what you are believing for. The sun still shines even behind the cloud. Your blog is full of faith! So encouraging.


You wrote at the end:
"Then when I settle my spirit down.. when I focus on what I DO know... He speaks to my heart."

WE KNOW - God is so faithful - and we CAN believe Him for great and mighty things - as well as simple things that He desires to teach us.

The enemy always wants to bring us to a place where he whispers, "God's not gonna do that for you - He doesn't work like that anymore."
But then we must REMEMBER WHO OUR GOD IS and WHAT HE HAS ALREADY DONE in our lives - His faithfulness will always overrule the lies of the enemy!

Believe ON... Sister!!

Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,

Great post! Thank you for that.

I have reached a place in my life where I have decided to let myself be transparent. Not just on blogs but in real life. When appropriate, I share things from my past and how I feel now. I share what God is doing in my life.

I heard a DJ on the radio say, so often we don't share and aren't transparent with people. How are others supposed to help us unless they know us and know our struggles?
