Hello! Today's topic is faith. When we decide to believe and take the journey of faith we expeirience a vast aray of emotions ranging from joy to confusion even emotions we can't name. The journey of faith isn't easy but it isn't supposed to be.In revelations in the letters to the seven churches their is always a verse that begins" He who overcomes ..." and then it goes on to explain different rewards. One of which says that Jesus will acknowledge us before God! Notice the word Overcome though. We do not live above those who don't believe. We are not exempt from death, sorrow, dissapointment or pain. The difference is we know that God is at our sides and that we are his children. We can turn to him knowing that. So I will rejoice in my faith , even when times get tough. Your thoughts?

Hello, sorry its been awhile , no I didn't forget, my computer has been having issues. Anyway the night before last I just finished my readings of first and second peter and found so many versus that spoke to me about the truth and power of our Lord Jesus. Remember peter is the one who's faith was continually faltering. He walked on water towars Jesus than began to sink when fear overtook his faith. He's the one who also cut off the guards ear when Jesus was taken away instead of listening and accepting to what Jesus was saying. He also denied Jesus three times afterward yet from the same mans comes :

1 Peter 2: 21,23 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. When they hurled insults at him,he did not retaliate; when he suffered he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.

2 Peter 3: 8-9 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promises as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

In the little things..

God reveals himself in the small things to. We all know this so why do we continually overlook it?
Yesterday was our movie night at due west from 8-11 and we were out on the deck with a projector and a sheet but anyway we had to wait for it to get dark and it was the quiet that spoke to me during that time. The day had been filled with loud noise from video games and noise that brothers make it was the utter contrast.. the quiet that spoke to me. Then we watched an awesome movie : august rush, and the peace and awarness from the quiet had me making connections all throughout the movie. I saw little pieces of God all around me and my life. Then when it started lightning we went into the sanctuary and still there was the peace where connections were flying I felt so close to God and my creative side. The little things the quiet led me to the the bigger picture of God's awesome power. The way home I was looking at the heat lightening and it was like a flashlight turning on and off a piece of the sky was bieng uluminated only for a second it was a glimpse of a puzzle piece... A glimpse of God's power a glimpse of what he created..Awesome huh?
God bless,
