How You ENCOURAGED me today, Lord!!!
Encourage, as in giving me Support, Confidence and Hope!
Hearten! Cheer! Uplift!
Inspire! Motivate! Stir!
Stimulate! Invigorate! Vitalize!
Revitalize! Embolden! Fortify!
Yep, that about sums it up, Lord. You did all this for me… and more!
By speaking much Truth to me… and helping me walk in that Truth!
Small steps, taken in the right direction, produce great results.
This is one Truth You whispered to me back in August of 2015. I have been walking it out ever since.
Not always in a straight line. Not always without difficulty.
Stepping. Stumbling. Falling.
Standing up again. Brushing off the dust. Binding up the scrapes.
Letting You kiss my “boo-boos.”
And pressing on.
Because of You, Lord. Because I KNOW and I TRUST that…
“Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
“In his heart a man plans his course, but [You] Lord establish his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)
“Whoever follows [You, Lord] will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
“Since we live by [Your] Spirit, let us keep in step with [Your] Spirit.” (Galatians 5:25)
“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
We took some small steps today… didn’t we, Lord?
And with Your encouragement, they felt like GIANT LEAPS!
