Faith is..

letting go of old ideas, plans, and dreams so we can embrace the new thing that God is doing. Faith is being ready to take a step when there is no one to say “what a great idea.” Faith is trusting in our invisible God..the one who is faithful in all things at all times.

When God calls us to take risks with Him, we are exercising our faith by following Him as He leads us down the path. Often the path is dark and all we can see is the next step.. He is ahead of us and has prepared the way. We may not feel confident and fears can raise their heads, but He has promised to be with us and to protect and guide us.

Do you need more faith? The Bible tells us to ask for faith and God will provide it. Of course it is a risky prayer..once we ask for more faith , the Lord gives us an opportunity to exercise faith in new and uncomfortable ways.. but there is no other way to grow.

As we trust Him in ways that require us to let go of our own plans and embrace all that He has for us..He reveals Himself in new ways. We begin to see His hand on our lives and realize at a deeper level that we are not alone. He is our father, our provider, our comforter, our closest friend, our safe place, our deliverer, our healer and redeemer.

We are blessed beyond belief to be in relationship with the Lord who loves us and cares for us in each and every circumstance. He has invited us into a great adventure.. one that He has designed for us..we are His people and He is our God!

“Now the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him— those who depend on His faithful love.”  psalm 33:18
