And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12: 1-3
Ok- this blog is really a journal entry for the kids when the ever need a little pick me up when they doubt God is with them. So kiddos listen up. I love this verse especially when I have doubt. God can be so subtle or right in our faces when we ask for His guidance and strength. The last two days I have felt Him get right in my face when I needed Him the most. But no matter what or how He answers I know He hears me. I get "God Bumps" when I can actually see Him answering my prayers that I have to share. Yesterday morning I was going through school things and trying to figure out curriculum and schedules asking Him if this really what He wants us to do. When I feel so overwhelmed with trying to figure it all out I begin to doubt and praying to Him asking if this is what He wants for our family. Yesterday afternoon in the mail I got a home school magazine. One I never subscribed to or even heard of. It was full of articles with moms talking about everything I was feeling and once again reaffirming why we do what we do. I have no doubt that it was Him answering my prayers from that morning. Also yesterday I was doubting my ability (yes it was a day out doubting) to teach a new women's bible study at church. I was asking Him if He was sure about this. Later on in the morning I received a phone call from a lady at church just thanking me for answering His call in starting this. She had been praying for guidance in her life and she feels that this is what she prayed for. Then this morning I was out for my run. The sun was so hot this morning and I was burning up. The last 1/2 mile was killing me and I was asking why am I doing this. I shot up a quick prayer asking Him to give me wings to reach the final stretch. All of a sudden a huge breeze shot up all around me pushing me towards me towards the end. As soon as I finished the wind died to a stand still. I know it was Him giving what I needed in the time I needed it. So, I have felt like Moses the last couple of days when God told him he would be the ones to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses questioned God about it. When God calls you to do something He knows what He is doing. When in doubt pray for strength and never lose the faith. He is right here with you. He will give you what you need at the time you need it. Press on!
