Trusting That God Will Answer

           "Mt Rainer" (Washington State)                     Maleko ©2012                   

God does answer prayers, we must be willing to approach and ask with the belief that he will reward those who seek him (Hebrews 11:6).  So often that is the hardest part as our pride gets in the way of humbly submitting and approaching a holy God. ~M

Listening for God

A photo of a bonfire we in our backyard burning our slash pile.  As I was listening to the sounds of the fire the crackling and popping as the wood burned, made me think about the trees when they burn and if we listen close enough would we be able to hear them scream in agony as the fire claims their green living branches?  So often we never stop, never quiet ourselves and the world around us, long enough to truly listen and to hear, especially for the voice of God as He speaks to our hearts.  ~M

Choose To Do Something

"The difference between those who don't do something and those who do do something is that those who do something, do something!"  quote by Banning Liebscher, director of Jesus Culture.

Despite your circumstances, your fears, your insecurities, your anxiety; while waiting on the Lord chose to do something.
