Faith-Steps Occur in Darkness, Lit Only by the Grace of God

Eyes widened with wonder as the enormous pillar of cloud spun, lifted, and moved to place itself between the enemy and God’s children. Never before on this long, arduous wilderness journey had they witnessed such an intentional move of protection from their God.

A Prayer For the Next Step, But It’s Foggy up Ahead

Lord, You truly are my Way-Maker. What You say You will do, You will do. In Your timing. In Your way You will light the next step for us.

Nothing Hidden Leads to Holy Ground

Sweat dripped profusely after two hours of weeding my flower gardens. I left nothing hidden — no roots for those darn weeds. Nothing. I wiped my brow with a cold cloth and plopped onto my porch swing. A gentle breeze passed by. A glass of ice cold water quenched my thirst.

A Prayer When Groping in the Dark for God’s Hand

Lord, You are my light and my salvation, my refuge and my strength. Darkness is seeping into every corner of the world, it seems. But I know You are with us. When I’m groping in the dark trying to find You, You light the way for me. Your abiding presence brings me comfort, for You are sovereign, in control. And You are aware.

Some days fear and uncertainty try to overtake me, making it harder to find You as I’m groping in the dark. My hand is fumbling, seeking the familiarity of Your touch.

Searching For God? Call. Come. Pray

The broom raked across the hardwood floor, scattering breakfast crumbs in its wake. My body went through the motions of daily routine, but my mind was wandering through the murky waters searching for God.

Trials of life were taking their toll. Hope for a secure future raced down a road leading through dark shadows and angry branches of despair.

“Nan,” I heard the Lord whisper to my weary spirit, “Come and sit with Me awhile.”

Why Should We Let Doubt Win?

A gentle wind began to blow across the hillside. Multitudes of people sat at Jesus’s feet learning of God’s love. Their bellies were filled with fish and bread — a miracle from heaven — even when the disciples’ doubt tried to prevent the miracle. As darkness began to fall, Jesus sent the people on their way, and told the disciples to get in their boat and go before Him to the other side.

Jesus, on the other hand, went up on the mountain by Himself to pray.
