A few weeks ago I drove past my son’s high school. The electronic sign out front caught my eye as it scrolled announcements. Graduation June 1. My son doesn’t graduate until next year, but suddenly, all the emotions of this eventuality overwhelmed me.
As Christians, we’re called to walk the path the Lord created for us. Sometimes the path is rocky, steep, or meanders frustratingly slow. We blindly walk as Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob did, not knowing where the path leads but believing in the One who directs our steps.
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
Faith walking isn’t easy. Turning loose of our children isn’t easy. Trusting God for the right job or your health isn’t easy. But faith not exercised ceases to exist. We are heirs to His promise. Praise God!
We live in earthly tents, but like Abraham, we look forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
What are you trusting God for today? I’d love to pray with you about it. Please leave your requests in the comments section below so others can pray or email me confidential requests.
A praise report from Courtney’s FB status, the young mother with a cancerous brain tumor we have been praying for:
WE GOT A GREAT REPORT!!!!! The spot of concern that was zapped 2 months ago with radiation, is dying off and the scan shows no new areas of growth. The doctor was very pleased! God is so good and I couldn't be any happier than I am right now! Thank you for the prayers, love and support. It means so much!
Every two months Courtney has repeat MRIs to check treatment progress. Please keep her in your prayers as she continues chemotherapy.
Prayer requests from previous weeks include job losses, home/farm foreclosure, depression, and difficult family situations. Also pray for Karen with leukemia and TC’s father-in-law with cancer.
As we go to the Lord in prayer, take a few moments to worship Him with “In Christ Alone” by Natalie Grant. If you’re struggling spiritually, let the Holy Spirit minister to you through this amazing song.
“In Christ alone, my hope is found...”
