Watching Him Work

When the World Says, “BOO!”

Canyon quote (2)When we have faith in God, we are completely confident He loves us unconditionally and will never stop loving us, we are boldly certain He loves us and will never stop loving us, and we have no doubt He loves us and will never stop loving us.

The thing is, faith is easy to have and maintain when things are going our way, but when things begin to go badly, our faith often begins to slip away. The world jumps out and says, “Boo!” and our first reaction is to scream and tremble.

Much like the disciples in the boat; when the storm began to rage and they were afraid, they turned to Jesus. Their faith was not as strong as it could’ve been, but it was strong enough to know where their rescue was.

We aren’t perfect, but when we encounter the storms of life, we can turn to Jesus with complete confidence, knowing with bold certainty, and without a doubt, He is with us and will see us through the storm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”  Mark 4:40

I wrote the following poem on Saturday morning, and took the pictures throughout what proved to be an inspiring weekend. The shot of Maisy blurred a bit, and I wish I’d gotten a better one. Enjoy!

Do You Believe in Magic?

There were so many beautiful things to see at Oak Thicket Park, and as we walked the various trails, I took several pictures. These shots I’m sharing with you do not do justice to the beauty we encountered, and I’m thinking about getting a new camera. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these little magical glimpses of our weekend. Read the rest of this entry »
