Gaining Faith

Good Morning Saints!
Today, it is 93 degrees in Denver! And, this is considered extremely hot for us Denverites:-) You know what else is hot? Trouble! Yep! Trouble is always lurking around the corner. But, I have found that our reactions are totally different when we are steeped in His Word and stepping-out in faith. The calmness that we feel is phenomenal! And, I give Him praise for holding us up when we would rather give-up.

Our faith grows, phenomenally, in the face of trouble and trials. We learn what we are made-of and what we are able to do with the help of the Holy Spirit. Take a few minutes to think-back on situations and circumstances that you have come through....  Was it all you? Were you the rock that pulled yourself through? Nope! It was the Lord and His grace that kept you from falling apart and giving-up. As you go about your way, today, lend a word of encouragement to those who are "going-through." Your blessings and experiences are to be shared with others. Many blessings!


Isaiah 43:2

New International Version (NIV)
When you pass through the waters, 
    I will be with you; 
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire, 
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.

Is Your Eye on THE PRIZE?

Good Morning, Saints!
It is a good morning, indeed! Why is this morning so wonderful? Because, it is a day that the Lord has made! Some people ask me how I can be so joyful, all of the time. The truth is: I'm not always joyful. Some days, it is difficult to see the beauty that the Lord has placed before me. But, I am wise enough to know that it is there and that I am blinded by the less important circumstances of my life.  And, when I give those circumstances to the Lord, no matter how big or how small, the beauty of His day sets upon me like a dew-kissed rose. Oh, the beauty that awaits all of us, if we keep our eyes on The Prize:  Jesus. 

Philippians 3:14
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
