Happy New Year Everyone!!

A quick update...I am feeling Great!!
That was the quick update - ha,ha!!
In the coming weeks I will give an expanded version of what wonderful things have been going on in my life, with my health and our family.  For now know I am consistently getting stronger and feeling better than I have in over 2 years!  Lots of rejoicing going on over here!!

As I have been getting stronger and able to think clearer (not a joke) I have been in prayer and preparation for this upcoming year!  I look forward to sharing more with you in the near future and would humbly appreciate your generous prayers!  Thank You - Thank You!!
I give thanks for the Lords Kindness, Patience and Faithfulness to me as I have waited on Him and He has waited on me.  Thank goodness He does measure or keep score!

In response to God's Faithfulness in my life - this year my hearts focus & prayer is to be more FAITHFUL.  I look forward to seeing how He grows me in wisdom regarding being faithful in every area of my life and also strengthening & expanding my awareness & appreciation of His Faithfulness and the Faithfulness of others.

I Am So Grateful For His Faithfulness!
Even when there are disruptions & storms in our lives or when people & things fail us - it is extremely comforting to know that God's Faithfulness & Love never ever fail!  Over the past couple of years I have witnessed & experienced His Faithfulness in great proportions through a variety of disruptions and disturbances!!  I am thankful beyond what my words can even express for His Love that caught me, held me and guided me through it all!!!
In the Bible there is story after story of God's Faithfulness.  Peter experienced Gods Faithfulness in a unique and powerful way when he stepped out of the boat.  He experienced a side of Gods Faithfulness that the others did not get to experience. 
What I am learning just one week into the new year is we must not only cease to do things that are wrong, harmful, weakening, fearful or evil but to be careful & conscientious and strive to be Faithful in doing things right, well, strengthening, encouraging, hopeful and inspiring in every area of our lives - including in relationships (family, friends, strangers), jobs, finances, health, home, serving, walking out our calling and our faith.  Oh Girls (And Boys) - have I got some growing to do in those areas!! 

When we seek Him in the midst of our difficult days and seasons - He responds with Faithfulness - and we are changed because of it.  He did it for Peter, the Disciples, for me and He will do it for you!
Like Peter, I want to courageously & obediently step out at the sound of His voice and be the one to experience His Faithfulness in a unique, powerful and personal way...Don't you?  Will you join me in responding to His Faithfulness?
I pray you are aware of this Faithful Love that I speak of.  The Faithful Love that God has for you.
Put your trust in Him and take courageous steps toward greater faith throughout this year and be aware and moved by God's Great Faithfulness happening all around you!

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Psalm 33:4 ESV
For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.

Psalm 36:5
Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

Be Inspired ~ Love ya!
