Saturday Steps of Faith

Today I am joining Lisa at My Passionate Pursuit for "Saturday Steps of Faith". Please stop by and visit Lisa. Maybe you'd like to join in and share:

What are you believing God for today?

My life has been somewhat hectic lately--stress at work, stress at home, many things happening and occurring which could have the capability of leading me to a path where my peace and calmness are nearly gone.

I have lived this life of stress and feeling somewhat chaotic inside for too many years prior to coming to Christ to go back to this lifestyle. I need to maintain my joy in Him, my peace in Him, my hope in Him. I need to remember that God is in control of this situation, not me.

Today I am believing that God has placed everyone and everything that is occurring in my life at this given moment to fulfill His plans and purposes for them and me.

Isaiah 26:3 says, "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is stayed on you, because He trusts in you.

That's my prayer for you today as I believe God with you.

Father, calm her heart, calm her fears, guard her mind. Fill her with your Spirit and draw her to your throne.

As she gives every burden, every care, every person to you may you fill her with the peace that only you can give. In the name of Jesus our Savior, Amen.

Thank You for joining today and for your prayers.
Blessings - Lisa

Ohhhh I forgot that you mentioned TPOYL!!! Another new Saturday meme! Steps of Faith...hmmmmmm...Beth...
What are you believing God for today? Some understanding, some compassion, some relief, some therapeutic release, some people that wraps the arms of Jesus around you so you can maintain your joy, your peace, your hope in HIM. God is in control...you got it! So let go, let God!

I'm believing with you that God has placed everyone & everything that is happening in your life at this moment to fulfill His Plans & purpose for GOOD for them & YOU!!!

Jeremiah 29:11 & Isaiah 26:3.

My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. (Exodus 33:14)

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. (Deuteronomy 33:27)

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
(1 John 5:4-5)

Cast all your anxiety on JESUS, because He cares for you. Discipline yourselves, keep alert. Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour. Resist him, steadfast in your faith. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you. (1 Peter 5:7-9a,10)

I thought I sent you a list of Bible verses for Faith in times of Stress. You certainly do not need any more stress...stress at work, stress at home, where is Beth to go? Run to God...when is that special time away?

Standing in prayer with you over all of this where you can return to the peace & calmness of sanity & ONENESS with Christ Jesus once more.
