Stepping in The Jordan


* I am working on my editing skills this week. I originally wrote this in May 2012. It was about twice as long! I am still learning so much. The passion has only grown deeper as I follow Jesus down this path of faith. *


Are you sure God? Am I hearing You? But there are sooooooo many people already out there doing what I think I hear You calling me to. Am I really hearing You?


I have opened my eyes to the immensity of the blogging world this week. The many women already doing this very thing. Am I not just another voice in a sea of many? I feel very insignificant today. Very inadequate for this task.


God has given us this task, of reconciling people to Him. 1Corinthians 5:18


Yet, here I am, sitting at my computer, pondering, musing, and typing......I love this place. This passion burning in my heart cannot be quieted.


For the love of Christ controls us. 1Corinthians 5:14


I am on a grace walk, a faith journey, finding my identity in Jesus Christ........ONLY. And this is where He has led me. So here I am, feeling very small and insecure. Faith is not something we see. I am learning to trust. Teetering on the narrow way. I feel much safer when I am less vulnerable. God whispers, "Trust Me......"


For we live by believing, not by seeing. 1Corinthians 5:7


Fragile, weak, scared, insecure, naked.....................

I am stepping in the Jordan River.


God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self discipline.
2Timothy 1:7

My Grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. 
2Corinthians 12:9


So here goes! I'm just gonna go with it! I guess this is part of finding my everything in Him. Realizing that ALL of my security is in Him. This is walking by faith.



Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all of the strength and energy that God suplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. 1Peter 4:11


I pray that God, the source of hope,
will fill you completely with joy and peace
because you trust Him.
Then you will overflow
with confident hope
through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

Love,
Renee

I am in a season of discovery as well...and find that when I step out and encourage others as I am lead by the Holy Spirit, I find joy. There is a sense of God's delight and in my heart I hear the words, "This is what I was made for." God is amazing!

Praise God! You will be abundantly blessed as you start to realize who you are in the Body Of Christ, I'm sure of it! Living for Jesus with purpose has changed my life. Everything about my journey has a different hue. It is really awesome. I am looking for opportunities to be used by God, and knowing that I have the gift of Encouragement helps me to discern where to put my efforts to maximize God's grace flowing out to others.

Amen!!!! That is exactly it! There is so much fulfillment for us when we allow God's Spirit to lead us. His blessings just flow to His children when we walk in obedience to Him. We serve a living God! And He delights in His children!

You are spot on Renee! No need to fear that you are stepping out of bounds where God is leading you. It is the Holy Spirit through you that is reaching out to people to encourage and bless them. No one but our God has this love for people. The world and the ruler of this world wants to devour us, harm us, etc. But greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world! I saw Jesus in the smiles of a white haired lady at church today. Her hearty handshake was comparable to someone much younger than her, but I got the message...I felt loved and received by God's Spirit within her. It doesn't take much to show His love, a smile, handshake, a hug. God will show you as you continue to be led by His Spirit! Love you, fb
