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!
My finger just stopped. The mouse cursor taunted me as it hoovered over the “Post” button. Honestly, this was not that difficult of a task to complete, but my heart rate proved otherwise.
Trust is not a noun, it’s a verb.
I was about to share the first two chapters of my book with a group of friends. Up to this point, this book project seemed to be a great idea.
I rewrote more.
But in order for this project to become a book, “I” had to become “we.”
“We” requires trust.
“We” requires action.
Inviting others into our dream requires a faith like never before. It requires a deep sense of peace, knowing that God has this process in His control. That is trust. I’ve had to rely on God in brand new, extremely uncomfortable ways throughout this group editing, professional editing and formatting process. I had to remind myself that this was His timing and His way (believe me, I would have done things much differently).
Here we are, just a few weeks until “UnMasked: The Journey from Surviving to Thriving” releases. Trusting God more as I take this step out into the world of published authors.
But I don’t want to take this step alone.
“I” needs to become “we.”
Will you be part of my “we”?
I love this quote:
I see us going father, together.
I wrote UnMasked because the more I speak, write
and coach, God brings others into my life that seek freedom.
They desperately want to know how they can tap into the feeling
of letting go of what others think of them and experience really
living in the moment.
How would your life be different without
the negative, self-doubting lies that tend to define your
What does it really look like to trust God wholeheartedly
and see beauty in the very person He created us to be?
After living for many years behind my mask, I finally cracked
its grip through believing in God’s Promises – a constant battle
that continues even today. UnMasked is just a
glimpse at my journey from surviving to thriving. I share my journey through managing a life with disabilities, battling brain cancer, becoming a wife and mom of three boys and my quest to find God’s purpose. When you take
off your mask, you are vulnerable and so far from perfect, yet
free and completely filled with His purpose. I want others to
experience this divine love our Abba has for His children,
unmasked and fully His.
