Something struck me the other day while thinking about perseverance and the many tests we all face in our lives. Abraham was a man who put himself wholly out there to believe God for something more than the status quo. He wandered the desert for decades. It made his faith into something whole and complete.
Pepe! I can't believe you just posted this..thank you so much! It is confirmation 100% for the second time today. I have so much happening in my life, I wanted to quit what God has called me to do. I needed this today. Crazy how when God confirms something to us through others, he sometimes puts a cherry on top. You mentioned Rose Colored Glasses...two years ago I had a dream that I was starting classes at a new school. I was assigned a locker, and when I opened it up, there was a pair of rose colored sunglasses inside. I said Lord what is this? I knew they were for my next season of learning. I forgot about that dream until you posted this. I had to remember that dream today. I might have to improve my optimism to get through this season. God Bless you, and your writing, and your health Pepe.
I’m in tears. Thank you. Just what I needed this evening. ❤️
We all waver at times and then He touches us with renewed faith or something happens that reminds us He has our backs!
Faith has to be enduring! We might be moving at mountain one rock at a time!
God sees us through Christ’s righteousness and what he did on the cross. That’s the second piece of the Armor, the breastplate of righteousness!❤️
Thank you so much, Pepe! We definitely need his grace.
Thank you for this, must keep Holding On To Our LORD and Father God....
Well stated! I have been reading about the Saint Faustina who shared Divine Mercy God has for us in her diary. He will never turn away from us. I will never turn away from Him.
Your messages are very timely and comforting. Thank you for all that you do❤️🙏🏾
Amen brother 🙏❤️🇺🇸🐸
Exactly what my husband and I needed. ♥️
Digging this post.
Once again spot on and on time!
After reading this I got a visual.
I see God forming each of us and setting us on our way. Then He’s watching and smiling as we go about being imperfect humans. And then His broadest smile as we humbly reconfirm and strengthen our Faith in Him through it all.
Looking ahead, staying the course, I can almost see a truly glorious and beautiful paradise which He has prepared for we the faithful. I pray that we are ALL there rejoicing together. God is good. 🙏🇺🇸🙏
It is a difficult road, however for me, God prepared me for this. It's amazing how I view life now. I have never wavered even while being x'd out.
My whole journey is based on faith. I get downtrodden and God takes me to
New Living Translation
And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.
When the Lord shares this with me He knows that I trust Him even in my failings. That he is not disappointed in me. He gives me strength to continue on in my journey WITH Him.
That I am still the apple of His eye.
All His children of faith, like Abraham will will finish the race. That is His promise.
