Why I am standing here


“having done all … stand firm.”

(Ephesians 6:13)

God is faithful!!!!

If I go to my grave never having grasped anything of real importance, I know that I know this, God is faithful, steadfast and true!!!!!

Right now I feel a bit like the Israelite’s who have been lead out of slavery, but have their captors giving chase and have been lead to what looks like their certain doom by a God who says He loves them.

They are facing the Red Sea with the Egyptians getting closer by the second thinking, “this is where we die.” They have no idea the AMAZING thing that God is about to do. The path that He is about to make open up before them.

Likewise, I have followed God to this place. He told me to give notice to my landlord, He told me to leave my job, He told me to prepare for England, and what jobs to Apply to, He even told me to start this blog and share about His faithfulness.. I have the Egyptians at my back, getting ever closer and I have an ocean before me which cannot be crossed without a miracle from God.

So I will Stand!!!

I will dig in my heals and believe and declare LOUDLY that God, MY GOD, is faithful!!!

That God is trustworthy!!!

Sit back and watch and be amazed as He parts the red sea in my life. And Believe Him to do the same in yours.

Now that is something to get excited about!




If you have been reduced to God being

your only hope, you are in a good place. ~ Jim Laffoon

Why is that?

Because as the old saying goes “When you are down to nothing God is up to something.”

When I finally started living for God I thought, “I am just going to take Him at His word. I am just going to trust and see if He comes through.”

What I found was that He always, ALWAYS made a way where I thought there could be no way.

There were too many “coincidences” for them to not be “miracles.”

So these days when I find myself in a position of needing God to come through, or it all seems to be falling apart, I tend to freak out a little first (though those periods are getting shorter and shorter), before I remind myself of how good God is. How He has never let me down before.

And then it hits me,

I start feeling over the top EXCITED!!!

I am so freaken excited right now because I need to see God come through in a huge way and I know that He will!!!

As the Bible says in Ephesians 6:13 we are to do our part and “after [we] have done everything, [we are] to stand.

And I believe that He wants us to stand, waiting with expectant hope.

What miricale do you need to happen? Do all you can do and then stand!

And while you are standing, waiting excitedly for God to do something amazing, tell others about your journey.

The world needs encouragement but more than anything they need God.

They need to know him as their loving father who will never leave them.

When you allow the joy of the Lord to turn to excitement you are like a lighthouse standing on a hill. People cannot help but notice.

And when He comes through for you, Talk About It!!!!!!

Do not hide your light!!!
