New Steps

God orders our steps
Isn't it a great feeling when you see children walk for the first time?

It's a feeling of jubilation and excitement for a new level for them. Those moments of elation and celebration are prolonged as the parent continues to revel in the new accomplishment their child just took. They are simply besides themselves. What an amazing thing to experience. Such a proud moment.

It's a new beginning. 

It's a new way of thinking for kids, a new way for them to act and interact, a new way of being. It's a fascinating world of possibilities that have just opened up to them. Now they will be able to explore a bold new world. From their newfound curiosity and freedom, they will understandably get into things. A lot of things. Some good and some not so good. Some things they will like and some things not so much. Nevertheless they are seeing a new set of opportunities and their attitude is that there are no limits in what they can do. They have a plan going forth to seize every one of those possibilities...until they are redirected by their protective parents to steer clear of them. There may be things that can hurt them. Parents only want their children to venture into the places that will offer challenges, yes, but nothing more than they can handle, nothing dangerous and nothing so big for them that they will fail. Parents love them far too much for that. 

This is the way it is with God. He is our father who watches over us. He never takes His eyes off His children. He encourages us and celebrates us. As we explore, He wants us to win. There are so many possibilities He has set before us. We just have to be careful, is all. He wants us to continue to walk towards Him and obtain great things. Even if we bump into a table or two or fall off the bed from time to time, He's got us, and we will be alright. If we get hurt we can go to Him for anything. He is always with us, because His love for us will never change. It remains strong and we can trust Him.

What am I saying?

Just as great parents are there for their children from when they take their first steps and throughout their lives, God is the same with His children. He never leaves us and He continuously orders our steps. We can't fail when we walk in His ways.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
