Walk by Faith
"The more you walk by faith, the less you'll need your sight." This was the main theme of a women's retreat that I went to a couple of years ago. There, I won a coffee mug that read the same thing on it. I have held onto those words. Rather, those words were placed deep into my spirit.
I have recently been talking about Living Waters Bridge Ranch. Laura, the owner of this non-profit and the ranch, lives by this. She does not take payment from any of clients. I have watched as the Lord has come through for the ranch time and time again. Feed is getting low, the phone rings. Need materials, the phone rings. I am blown away over and over again by the way God comes through. More, however, I am amazed that of her relentless faith. Honestly, I long for it.
Today, I had the opportunity to place that faith in God. I had a virtual Dr. appt. scheduled at 11:00. Truthfully, I did not have the funds to pay for the appointment. I kept hearing him say, "trust me", so I did. I continued with the appointment. Then, God handled it. I thank God for giving me a small test to strengthen my faith. With the places he has assigned for me, I imagine there will be many more. My prayer is that the words "trust me" are always louder than the "what-if".
Thank you, God. Thank you for the test to increase my faith today. Thank you for taking care of things for me. Thank you for loving me and wanting a relationship with me. Thank you Holy Spirit for your guidance and peace. Thank you, for placing examples of great faith infront of me to watch, learn, and be inspired and strengthened by. Thank you for reminding me that I am loved and cared for. Thank you for wanting a relationship with me. Me. Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. Though I feel completely unworthy you show me that I am. Thank you!
