Our Most Recent Journey in Trusting God

“Urged on by faith… he went, although he did not know or trouble His mind about where he was to go.”  Hebrews 11:8

These have been the perfect words to describe a recent season surrounding our family.  I thought our lives were pretty settled and secure. Then one day, the bottom seemed to drop out.  Since then, we’ve been on a journey of faith like never before.

Like Abraham, we are going… and trying hard not to “trouble our minds” about the details.  And along the way, the Lord is blessing us, strengthening us, and taking precious care of us as He teaches us to “Walk by faith, and not by sight.”  (‘Cause sometimes “sight” doesn’t look so good…right???).

These are the links that chronicle our journey and joy in our Faithful God who is carrying us each day.

“My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.  He will not allow your foot to slip or to be moved; He Who keeps you will not slumber.”  Psalm 121:2-3 Amp.

“My help comes from the Lord…”  and so does yours.  I am praying right now that everyone who reads through any of our journey will be strengthened to trust the Lord.  He is Faith-FULL, and friends… we can trust Him and rest in Him.

“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  Matthew 11:28-29

Much love to you all… Thank you for reading and being a part of SmellingCoffee!
