A Brush of Faith

Have you ever felt like you are with the Israelites wandering through the desert? In the past, I have pictured myself just wandering, not in the desert, but in this field of loss and infertility. You try and listen to what you think God is telling you to do next, but at times you're unsure of what He wants you to do. God uses those times, when we feel lost and unsure, to teach us what it means to live off of faith. Faith is knowing He has the perfect plan for you without seeing it what it is. His plan is just around the corner, if you would just believe. Faith that his plan for you is not to harm you, but to give you hope.
There are other times, when you clearly know what God is telling you to do. You may not want to do it, so you try and ignore Him. God is persistent, and He will not let up. Even if you are scared or have anxiety over what God is telling you to do, you have to have faith. Faith that what He has called you to do is not setting you up for failure, but have faith that what He wants you to do is for your good, and it is part of His will for your life.
Today, because it is Wednesday and I should be with my Bible study girls watching a Beth Moore video (if I weren't headed out of town), I decided to post this video of her that I absolutely love. She is a woman of such great faith, and one of my biggest role models. Enjoy, and prepare to laugh!

  1. Fabulous!

    So many times my faith has worn thin in life; but - as they say - the anchor held fast.

  4. I have heard this story before but didn't know it was Beth Moore that it happened to. This made me both laugh and cry...Your comment of "Faith is knowing He has the perfect plan for you without seeing it what it is." says it all. Thanks for sharing this. Blessings, Debbie
