It’s been awhile. I apologize. There has been some big changes that caused a delay in me sitting down to write. I actually have to admit that I have felt uninspired to write as well. I’m always looking for something that will spark something in me and even now I’m still not sure what this blog will end up being about.
The big change in my life that happened about a month ago is that my roommate and I moved to a different address. We live in the same town but the new place is bigger, it’s amazing how God delivered on what we were believing for. It started with a ‘sandwich order.’ After we heard a faith lifting inspiring message at church one Sunday, my roommate and I sat down and wrote down what we would want in a new place. It’s so fun to be able to imagine and dream about all the little details. God wants us to dream big. He is a big God after all. He wants us to have our hearts desire. We then taped it up on our living room wall, it’s a place we would walked past it multiple times a day. We could look at that list and thank God that it was ours. I want to say it was a good year ago we decided to do that. Then you know life goes on, but we stayed in faith.
It wasn’t until a couple months ago that yet another amazing sermon brought our faith levels up and we pressed for this new apartment that we only had seen and believed with our eyes of faith. It was a Sunday or two later that I was scrolling through Facebook and saw a place that looked like it would be worth a look. It was all God at how quick it went. That Sunday we got to see the apartment and the day after we were signing the lease and a month after that we were able to move in. God is so good. We are still amazed at how everything on our list was in this new apartment and more!
If our amazing God can do that for us with an apartment, just let our imaginations go wild at what else He wants to give us! He wants us to ask him for our hearts desires; give him every detail. He wants us to to be in faith that what we prayed and asked Him for is ours. He wants us to thank and praise him for it even when we don’t see it, even when it looks to be all odds are against us. That’s faith! And faith pleases God!!
We can stay in faith by purposefully being in the Word everyday. Let it renew your mind and make you free to the truth. In the days we are facing right now, we need to find a way to get to church that preaches from the bible. We need to keep each other built up and encouraged. If you can’t go to a local church, find one online and plug in. My church is called Love of God Family Church. You can find us on Facebook. Love you and God Bless.
So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. Romans 10:17 NLT
Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen. Hebrews 11:1 TPT
And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God.[e] For we come to God in faith[f] knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking him. Hebrews 11:6 TPT
