My Steps

carissaedit-53

Psalm 17: 5, 6 “My steps have held fast to your paths; my feet have not slipped. I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; incline your ear to me; hear my words.”

I have been so encouraged by God’s provision this week.  He seems to reassure us the most, when things are looking the most uncertain.  Even when things seem “rocky” and unsteady, He shows us that His plans for us are His own. 

Thank you to a few “angels” this week who have been heavenly reminders and “hands and feet” to show us God’s faithfulness.

Thanks to YOU for standing by us, for continuing to encourage us, for your patience and understanding through these last few months. 

Oh God, let my steps hold fast to your paths! 

(Side note: The steps in this photograph are not my own, but my niece Carissa’s that I took over a year ago.  I love how this image helps me visualize Psalm 17:5)

    We have been in the path your family is now, uncertainty. I know how hard it is to trust in His faithfulness and plan for you. Right after I read your post, I turned on K Love and this song was playing…
    “You Never Let Go” by Matt Redmen
    Everytime I hear that song, it gives me the much needed reminder that He Will Never Let Go.
    Have a wonderfull family filled Fourth!

    I have had a very difficult year and I have felt God’s providence throughout my ordeal. It is so wonderful to be lifted up and supported by our family of believers. To God be the glory for His children to do what he has called them to do. I am so glad you load has been lightened a bit and you are being carried down this difficult road. You and your family is in my prayers. (I am friends with Tricia and she showered me with food during my most difficult time. What a blessing she is!)

    Through my experiences and those of others the past 2 yrs I continue to be reminded of what a blessing blogging has been to me.

    My faith has been strengthened tremendously and the people I don’t know what I did before meeting my blogging friends?

    Thank you for sharing, what an important reminder. And I was glad to see Jill’s tweet about this the other day.

    Prayers and blessings to you and your family!
