My Faith, My Life

Psalm 42:1 – As a deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.

John 10:27 – My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

2 Thessalonians 3:16 – Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with you all.

Daniel 3:17a – If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it…

Daniel 3:18a – But even if he does not…

Psalm 23:1 – The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

The six verse above, all taken from the New International Version of the Bible, sum of my faith in ways I could not articulate.

I used to be upset that I didn’t have a huge redemption story of lightening bolt amazement. I used to fear I wasn’t God’s child because I couldn’t put my finger on the exact moment He came into my life. I used to feel that I had no testimony.

Then one day, as gently as the trees wave their branches to their Creator, a Breeze filled my soul and washed over me in a way nothing had before or since, and I KNEW. I knew I am a child of God.

I don’t need a great, splashy story. I don’t need a faith I can explain. All I need is my God, my Creator, my Strength, my Wisdom, my Shepherd, my Guide, my Savior.

No matter where I am in life, no matter what is going on around me. No matter if God says “no” to one of my deepest prayers,  no matter what, God is and I am.

May you open yourself up to the peace and love of God, and may they flow into your soul now and forevermore.

See you next time,

  1. I am so excited over Dancing In God’s Love it has helped me understand my Bible so much better. I’ve never read any other than the KJV but the explanations of scripture are more to my understanding as I’m reading this book daily. I’m hoping to meet Debi in person one day and if not in person I’ve already met her through this book can’t wait to get the next one. Debi thanks for all you do and may you have a blessed day and an amazing Easter. Cuz
