With the launch of my grief course last week, I’m a bit behind in posting for Take Me Deeper.
Week 4’s topic was Transform Faithfully. I focused on the 2 concepts of His Faithfulness and My Faith
Great is Thy Faithfulness.
My pastor’s definition of faith caused me to dig deeper. Fearless and unashamed? Okay. I get that. But “Aggressive” isn’t a word I normally associate with faith. I think maybe this is the type of faith that enables you to pray for the BIG things. It’s the “saying THANK YOU, GOD, before I physically see the answer” kind of believing. It’s the stepping out and not just sitting back, waiting for things to happen kind of believing. #tmd2015
Week 5 was Purposeful Transformation
We are in a partnership with God in the transformation process. He will absolutely do His part without fail. It is up to us to do our part, too.
I drew a girl with a wilted plant. The plant leaves represent some of the parts of me that require God’s input: Prayer, Ministry and Bible Study. I have begun the work in these areas, but I need God’s help to grow them. So I gave her a broken watering can and a rain cloud. She’s looking up expectantly – waiting for God to make good on His promises.
Jesus, bring the rain!
Prayer: Precious Father, I praise You for Your faithfulness. Help me to have BIG faith, even in the small things. Make me accountable for my part of our work together, for I know You are ready to go to work on my behalf. Bring the rain, Jesus! Help me grow!by
