Coming Soon! A New Series: Be Fully Persuaded
I have read blog posts, Tweets, and Facebook statuses. I have responded to texts, phone calls, and face-to-face conversations. The circumstances are all very different, but they have a lot in common too.
Families are struggling. People are desperate to see God at work in their situations. They are barely clinging to the hope and faith that sustained them in better times. Whether the needs are spiritual, physical, financial, mental, or emotional, they are very real, and they weigh heavy on those who are waiting.
I have prayed over many of these situations, whether the people involved realize it or not. My heart aches as I see the struggle. I want people to be edified and uplifted, encouraged, to know that God is still working and moving in lives and situations.
As I thought about encouraging others and bringing glory to God and His work, three verses came to mind:
Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
Romans 4:20-21 (NIV)
They triumphed over him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony . . .
Revelation 12:11a (NIV)
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23 (NIV)
The new series, Be Fully Persuaded, will share stories of how God is faithful to His promises today. I will share stories of God’s faithfulness to meet the needs of my family and will invite guests to post their own stories of God’s provision and faithfulness in every area of their lives. (I will send writer’s guidelines to those interested in contributing to the series.)
This series will begin very soon, on Thursdays, right here. If you don’t already subscribe to my blog, please use the box below to do that now. I don’t want you to miss a single story of God’s faithfulness and provision!
