Making Way Part 1 – God will fight for YOU

I believe with all of my heart that God is the way, is making way and will make way, even where there seems to be no way. And I have doubted this at times as I was learning more about the reality of this in my life. But as each year passes and I look back I see God making way for me, my family and others where there seemed to be NO way,  not financially, not medically, not relationally nor any other way.

Take Courage

In the busyness of life, many of us have to let go of the promises of God.
We still believe them but we have stopped actively persuing them. – Graham Cooke

As I read this statement the other day I felt relief. Relief because the one or the other promise had to be benched while the busyness of my life competed with centre stage.

I really want to justify myself and others for once so decided to write a little online letter to the Internet Trolls, the Nitpickers, the know-it-all-better, the acusers and shamers, the never-do-anything… So.
Dear Interent Troll

Dear Internet Troll,

Speak up or Shut up?

A situation at home with one of my sons caused me to have to think about the example I set for them. He was experiencing the consequences of speaking up and not being received well! The apple does not fall far from the tree! And I was hurting for Him, because I could see why he had done it, what he could have done better and the painful situation he was now faced with! Really I wanted to storm in and sort it out for him. But apparently, that is not good parenting! So I prayed and pondered as I listened to Him

When is it right to speak up and when is it ok to be silent about an injustice?

Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Not one of us is made to go at it alone! Life is to be lived in relationships. And yet, there are times when God is asking us to dare to say or do something personally, that he might not ask anyone else to do. It can feel like you have to walk away from everything that you have known, in pursuit of conviction and obedience, and you have to do it alone. It is your journey alone. Not somebody else’s.

I used to believe that the level of true spirituality and Christian maturity was measured by how well you can control yourself. How perfect you can be! Oh gosh, those days when I had an answer for everything and everyone! That notion is long gone – thankfully! Yuk!
I now know that true spirituality has something to do with vulnerability and taking the quick turns to God and sometimes others to unburden and humble oneself.
It is a courageous thing for the broken heart to open up!
