I've Got This!
We are all in need of God’s guidance in our lives—when to move forward, when to slow down, when to wait, when to say “yes” and when to say “no.” The most important thing in knowing God’s guidance is not about knowing a formula, but knowing God; not about hearing opinions, but hearing God’s voice; not about striving, but resting in God’s wise and wonderful will.
~ I don’t know the next step on the path, but I know the Guide. Psalm 32:8 "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you."
~ I don’t know the next chapter in the book of my life of faith, but I know the Author and Finisher. Hebrews 12:2 "fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith..."
~ I don’t know the best decision to make, but I know the Counselor. Isaiah 9:6 "And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
~ I don’t know how the need will be met, but I know the Provider .Philippians 4:19 "And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory."of his glory in Christ Jesus."
~ I know the One in whom I trust. 2 Timothy 1:12 " I know Whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him."
With all those assurances, I'm quite confident in saying "He not only knows the plans that He has for you and me, but He will most certainly make sure those plans come to pass!"

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
