Moment by moment

I have friends who have had to leave their homes due to the fires in Colorado. This picture was taken over Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. God’s promises endure …even in the fire.  What a poignant picture of life outside the garden.

From Jesus Calling, June 27

Rest with me awhile. You have journeyed up a steep, rugged path in recent days. The way ahead is shrouded with uncertainty. Look neither behind you nor before you. Instead, focus your attention on Me, your constant Companion. Trust that I will equip you fully for whatever awaits you on your journey.

He Knows.

Yesterday I wrote about how I was anxious about the unknown….

This morning I read from the devotional Jesus Calling. (It’s written with Jesus in the first person, as if He were talking to you.)

October 6
Be willing to follow wherever I lead. Follow me wholeheartedly, with glad anticipation quickening your pace. Though you don’t know what lies ahead, I know; and that is enough! Some of my richest blessings are just around the bend: out of sight, but nonetheless very real. To receive these gifts, you must walk by faith – not by sight.

From the beginning of this journey until now…. God has always shown up at my lowest lows – to remind me (in a very personal way) that He knows. He knows me; he knows Anne; he knows what was, what is and what will be. He knows; He is sovereign, and He is good; therefore, we will trust in Him.

Thank you for praying with us – for Anne’s healing and for our family to walk by faith and not by sight.


Praying for His Presence

For those of you who have the devotional, Jesus Calling, today’s entry was very awesome!

My sweet friend, Paulette, gave me that devotional and as I read this morning, I thought of both my circumstances and hers – as her husband has significant surgery today.

I’m praying for both of us to leave the future in God’s hands, and to experience His caring presence in the present!
