Day 4 – Reflections: Believing God

This has been an interesting point for me to ponder the past two days….believing God is able. Believing God’s promises aren’t too big to fulfill in my life. Believing God will accomplish what I sense Him calling me to believe. Trusting Him to do a spiritual work in my life when I am asking for a physical work. (Please see the last post to make sense of this pondering).

Today I stood before a “deep well”- something that with human eyes looks impossible, or very unlikely. I know God has what it takes – He is God, after all! But like many of you shared, I wonder if He will. I hesitate to believe because I don’t want to get my hopes up.

God has our family on a faith journey of believing Him and trusting His promises in our adoption and possibly moving. Instead of writing here today, I just posted about my wavering faith on my other blog since I amjournaling in details there about the whole process of where we are with all of it. Click here to read on our family blog. We’d treasure your prayers.

  5. Thanks for your honesty and authenticity. It’s so reassuring to know that you go through the same ups and downs as the rest of us.

  6. Thanks for sharing all of that. I jumped over and read. I am praying ofr you.

  7. He KNOWS so much more than us, He sees what is for your best and His glory. We have this urging to sell our home which in our small town, with our home would be a GOD THING. It’s so strange though that we don’t have a clue where He wants to move us, so much up in the air. But as I tell myself, HE KNOWS. I love that we can be repetitive as the widow before Him and then sit back and “Be still, and know that He is God” HE KNOWS, He hears–praying His peace as you wait.

  8. In hoc signo visctnUleraliberal rights have been imposed on societies they have not been arrived at through a process of greater knowledge or spiritual empathy and human understanding that could be called moral evolution.They are a political construct to advance a political agenda. Ultraliberal human rights the totalitarian moral code that will destroy us all majority and minority alike.
