My weekly personal note:
(Skip down to the weekly journal jots if you prefer.)
Good afternoon, Friend,
Just shaking my head here… I CANNOT believe it’s nearly August! How did time fly by this fast?! (Looking forward to my favorite season, fall, but I know there’s a way to go yet before we get there.)
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little mini sermon that comes from one small Bible verse that I recently read…
“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.” - Mark 11:22 KJV
Isn’t this the ANSWER to ALL of our situations and trials?
Jesus then goes on to say, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” - Mark 11:24b KJV
This week I want to encourage you to take JESUS at his own word… Take his advice! Have faith in God. And believe God is able! So simple — yet so important.
Keep walking in faith,
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” - Psalm 51:10 kjv
