Saturday Steps of Faith - Believing God/ Melissa!

Steps of Faith

"And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9)

His Grace is sufficient .
He strengthens.
He upholds.

His mercy is unending.
He is gracious.
He forgives.

His majesty is matchless.
He is glorious.
He reigns.

When I feel as if the world is closing in -

I look up.

When I feel like I'm at the end of my rope -

I reach out.

When I'm not sure of my next step -

I call to Him.

When I feel like the waters are rising and the deep has closed around me, I turn to the one thing that I know -


When all else escapes me - I have prayer.

When I am void of a clear thought - I have prayer.

When I'm tired or lonely. When I'm overwhelmed or misunderstood - I have prayer.

I commune with Him in prayer and He consumes me.

I commit to Him in prayer and He covers me.

God is faithful.

At my lowest - He is the highest.
At my worst - He is the best.
At my ending - He is the beginning.

His sufficiency reigns omnipotent. His mercies reign immeasureable. He is God. He is worthy of our Praise. Hallelujah! He reigns!!

Thank you Lord for prayer. I am believing that You hear my prayer. I am believing that You hear my cry. Thank you precious Father, that our prayers connect us to You. Thank you that prayer is the beginning of our worship. Thank you that prayer is healing, restoring, cleansing and renewing.

I'm believing God.


I am thankful today that my daughter Melissa is better. She has been in Africa for 2 weeks now and for the past 5 days she has been very ill. The last I heard on Wednesday, they were going to test her for Malaria yesterday if she wasn't better, but I didn't hear from her until late last night. They didn't do the test, because she felt better. (the don't have an abundance of supplies, so they try to save if at all possible.) Not only was she better, but The Lord provided a window unit AC for her little home. Praise You Jesus!! She sounded stronger and will be back working at the hospital today or Monday. Please continue to be in much prayer for her. She has 7 more weeks and I miss her terribly.

I am so glad to hear that Melissa is feeling better! My girlfriend Mary's brother John will be a missionary doctor starting next August. He's doing his fifth year residency somewhere in Africa, but doesn't know exactly where yet.

Oh Beth, I am betting your momma's heart is being tugged pretty heavily knowing your baby is so far away and has been sick! I am praising that Melissa is feeling better and I will pray that her full recovery is quick and complete.

Thank you for your continued prayers for my SIL. Time moves slowly at moments like these! :o)

Miss Beth,

I pray and I love your precious Mellissa. She has been kind to both Bill and I. I love how you and Mr. Jimbo have taught her well!

Blessings and much love, Yolanda

Such cause for joy, and celebration! I doubt there's anything that buoys a mother's heart more than to see a child on the mend.

Be blessed,
