Joy Dare - An embrace of faith

In my usual way, I tossed all the clothes on the bed.

I was going to do my parade. Try them on one by one and then sashay for the hubby so he could "yay" or "nay"....that's our way, or should I say my way. Sometimes, I think I bully him into sitting through it, but not today, today, he too was game.

It was the third item I pulled out, cotton, blue, and beautiful. The first thing I loved about it was its color and as I unfolded it, I realized what it really was...a gift of faith, a gift of dreams. 

....God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;  Rom 4:17b (NKJV)

Faith wrapped itself around my heart and in that one gift she gave, I received a multitude of gifts...strengthened faith, joyful expectations, re-assurance, indescribable calm, peace, hope...a heartwarming sense of being loved by God through this vessel, my very own angel, my sister.

It is a blessing to walk in faith, A bigger one to have hands that hold yours as you take that walk, hands that stay, hands that remain, reminding you of He who speaks and whose words are Ye and Amen.

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou may know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. (Isaiah 45:3).

'It is a blessing to walk in faith, A bigger one to have hands that hold yours as you take that walk, hands that stay, hands that remain, reminding you of He who speaks and whose words are Ye and Amen.'
