On book release day for If I Believe, I uploaded a video on Closed Doors, Disappointment & Being Immovable. I know, it sounds odd to do such a video on such a day, but, well, you’ll see… :-)
Much of our lives feels ordinary and mundane. But we serve an extraordinary God. Why not believe that He wants to do something extraordinary…..through you?
You may not know what God will do or how He will do it, but know that He is able. When He gives you that next step of faith…..DO THE THING.
What I’m learning… When God gives you a dream, it often means cultivating new habits…..and fresh faith!
Sharing the new venture God laid on my heart. Has He put a dream in your heart? Do you struggle with doubts, frustration, the waiting, whether you’re hearing….? Join me on YouTube as I chronicle steps of faith. Let’s walk it out together!
It’s been three weeks since Though I Stumble released, and I’ve been so encouraged by the feedback. The overarching theme seems to be resonating, as people tell me that they are determined to keep running for Christ, even if they stumble. I praise God for that. In the months and months of writing, you wonder if you’re hearing from God, if the story is making sense, and whether anyone will be impacted by it. That’s always my prayer. Yes, I want my books to be entertaining—but I especially hope that they minister.
For those of you who are doing the companion In Hot Pursuit study, I pray that that has been a blessing as well. Video #4 is the last in the series. In this life, we will stumble. But are you determined to keep running?
Wishing you and yours a blessed Merry Christmas! May the love, joy, and peace of the season be yours in full measure.
“It was for freedom that Christ set us free . . .” (Galatians 5:1). As believers, though we’ve been set free in Christ, we can find ourselves in bondage once again in numerous ways. Video #3 in the series speaks to the need to free ourselves so that we can run unhindered.
May the Lord give us grace to run free!
If we want to effectively run for Christ, one of the first things we need to do is to “gird up.” Video #2 in the series talks about what that means, as well as other vital aspects to staying focused.
Praying the Lord gives us all grace to gird up and run well!
In my last post about the release of Though I Stumble, I said I was excited to share something more. Some of you may remember the study we did here on the blog called, In Hot Pursuit. Believe it or not, that was nearly five years ago! It’s been on my heart to re-write that study in a more accessible way. I’m excited that by God’s grace, I was finally able to do it. A “mini-devotional study” with four lessons, it will be available for download as a companion to Though I Stumble on Friday, December 2. Continue Reading…
