I don’t even know where to begin right now. One month into recovery from major back surgery God is teaching me so much. I can honestly say it’s been the most painful, purposeful journey I’ve ever been. In fact, I believe this “Faith Walk” journey has just begun. How was I to know that God would use such a dreaded time in my life to breathe life into my soul?
Earlier I walked out the door for my morning recovery walk. The rain that was pouring down made me walk right back inside. I kept waiting on the rain to die down, but it just would not. Finally, I decided that I needed to put on a red poncho and walk anyway. I’m pretty certain I looked like Little Red Riding Hooding walking through my neighborhood.
During that walk God flooded my heart with truth. He reminded me that there is always a purpose for the rain and pain. And as long as I allow Him to continue to lead me forward through the rain, there is nothing to fear. After all, the opposite of faith is fear.
Maybe you’re going through something right now that you just don’t understand. You feel like the rain just won’t stop and the pain is breath taking. Trust me, you just need to keep walking in the rain. Knowing that God is still God. God is still good. God is doing something greater than you can see or comprehend at this time.
(Proverbs 3:5-6) Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
I just started a new message series that you can listen to by going to www.RefugeChurch.org. There you will hear how God birthed in my heart the understanding of this faith walking journey. Also, you can discover how learning to faith walk yourself can change everything about your life.
