Walking By Faith

Walking In Faith

Job 23:10
“He knows the way I take”

What confidence I have because of the way I take, This way of trials and tears, however winding, hidden, or tangled. “He knows”. When the furnace is heated hotter than usual, I know He still lights my way. He who knows and directs my steps. The furnace may be hot, but I trust the hand that lights the fire will not consume but only refine and when the refining process is complete not a moment too soon or late “I will come forth as gold”. When I feel God is further away, He is often the nearest to me. (Psalm 142:3) “When my spirit grows faint within me, it is You who know my way”



God never promised a life without pain, Laughter without tears, Or sun without rain. But He does promises strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way, and for all who believe in His Heaven above, He rewards their faith in His everlasting love.

Moving forward, Looking upward

Hebrews 11:1

“Faith is being certain of what we do not see”

Genuine faith puts its letter in the mailbox and lets go- Distrust, holds on to a corner of the envelope and then wonders why the answer never arrives. Meaning- we hand over our circumstances over to God, allowing Him to work.  (Psalm 37:5) “Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will do this”.  He will never work until we commit. Faith is receiving the gifts God offers us. We believe in Him, come to Him, commit to Him and rest in Him. Though we will never fully realize all our blessings until we begin to receive from Him and come to Him having the Spirit of abiding.  (philippians 4:6) “Do not be anxious about anything”  (1 Peter 5:7) “Cast all your anxiety on Him”, Here is when we cast our burdens on the throne of grace, (our true faith) we then walk away with believing and trusting the Lord that He will take care of everything. Don’t worry about the “what if’s” or when is it going to happen or answered, move forward , looking upward in faith, believing and trusting the Lord.

Blessing to you All!  In Him,  Lourdes

Faith Hope & Love

I live with these three words in my heart, Faith, Hope and Love.

Hebrews 11:1

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; It gives us the assurance about things we can not see.

Jeremiah 29:11

“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.

1 Corinthians 13:13

“And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is Love.

I believe having Faith, Hope and Love as I go through my days I find an amazing sense of peace, I focus on the little things that matter most to me. For instance… The birds singing, the beautiful butterflies, flowers and trees, my boys playing and laughing, a pleasurable walk, people I meet wherever I go, a simple greeting and smile to brighten someones day, a complement to someone, or just being mindful, keeping things simple and peaceful. This brings me so much joy and peace. Doing this for myself, I don’t think or worry of life circumstances or my busy schedule. I appreciate life and all the people I encounter. If your asking yourself “How and why does she seem so happy?”, well I can tell you for a long time I took people and things for granted, not that I didn’t appreciate them, Its because I always thought its normal to be nice and do things for others. But I learned I was wrong. It takes having compassion, caring and listening to others needs. To stop focusing on self and be that person to make a difference in this world. As I wake up each morning, I say… Thank you God for another day that I have a purpose for. I look forward to starting my day and ending it with a “Thank You”. Having Faith, Hope and Love is all I need to get through my days with a smile, a peaceful mind, and a happy heart. Try it. You will feel peace and joy. Its a beautiful feeling.  Blessings!
