Saturday Steps of Faith - Believing God

Steps of Faith

I spent the morning with our friend J.D. and his wife Lois. Jimbo and I went to their house to drink coffee and visit (they live about 30 seconds from us). They came in from Shreveport last night and are just waiting to hear from the doctor on what the next step is. We had the best visit and it was so good to get some great hugs out of both of them! I love them so much.

J.D. looks really tired and the medication he is on causes him to be a little loopy at times. He is in such good spirits and is just believing God for whatever His will is for his life. He said he is at peace with God either way. Whether God calls him home or if God provides an earthly healing.

The verse that God gave me yesterday spoke volumes to my heart.

"Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God" (Luke 18:27)

I am believing God today that His perfect will be done. I am believing God that no matter what happens, God is still God and He is still on the Throne. I am believing God today that even when our circumstances seem bleak, He care about us and for us. He loves us and desires good things for us. He knows best and He will be there to take care of the details. Even when we don't know how we can go on, He knows and He provides the way.

I am believing God today that He will help me to keep my eyes on Him and help me to keep my focus on the eternal.

Today... I am believing God.

I am believing God with you for his healing - whether here or in heaven - he will be healed. May God use his testimony to bring people to Jesus.

As soon as I woke up this morning I began praying for JD and Lois. They were heavy on my heart! Surrender is a beautiful thing. Can you imagine how the Lord love and adores that in JD!

I am so thankful that what we find impossible, the Lord DOES NOT!!!! and He cares more than we can even begin the fathom for everything in regards to JD and Lois! Lifting all of you to our Lord and Savior and to the great Comforter.

Love to you to you!

I prayed for J.D. I asked for the impossible from the God who makes all things possible.

Thank you visiting my blog; I appreciate your encouraging words.

Sweet dreams.

Ah I love those good old fashioned games of hide and seek. As a matter of fact one of my teens most favorite things to play in Hide and Seek in the dark on our street. I am amazed at just what great friendship is inspired by getting together with friends and spending priceless summer memories with each other.

It even takes me back to those days when I too used to play. Only these days, they play in pairs! Teamwork makes it all the more worth wild!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
