I love Peter's experience of walking on the roaring sea with Jesus. But the thing is, Peter's story is often misunderstood. Do you have a step you need to take?
Listen to this message I gave at a women's retreat to gain the fresh perspective you need to see Jesus in a new way! My FREE gift to you!
The past few days, I’ve felt the idea of “trust” present itself in so many ways…it’s crazy. I believe God truly believes I have ADD, it seems like when I finally understand the lesson He has been trying to show me, I look back and notice His obvious attempts to get my attention…and my “blazing too fast to care” lifestyle just completely missed the obvious. Ever been there?
I recently completed Tracie Miles book “Stressed-Less Living” and the theme that really resigned with me was our need to fully trust God. It makes sense…
If we fully trust God to be Who He has promised us in His Word that He would be, we would not need to hinge under the added stress of fear.
if we fully trust God to be Who He has promised us in His Word that He would be, we would openly define ourselves as His Child before any other role.
if we fully trust God to be Who He has promised us in His Word that He would be, we would literally live in these promises God has clearly outlined time and time (and time and time and time and time….) again in His Word.
Tracie Miles suggested an activity that I actually made the time to complete! I know…I’m proud of myself too! And guess what? It has helped me build my trust in Him during the chaos of this uncertain time in the life of our family.
Personalize Gods Truth. Believe Gods Promises. Live a life built on trust in HIM.
