When we say we have faith- we have to put weight on that on which we are placing our faith in. Otherwise we only have hope.

Faith requires more of us than many of us are willing to surrender. We like to be comfortable. I know I do. It’s easy and predictable.

When Jesus asks us to step out of the boat, that’s when we have to stare at him and lock in. It’s got to be you Jesus or this isn’t going to go well. Help me Jesus! 🙏🏻

And He does! Miracles happen and God is glorified. We can’t take any of the credit and He gets the glory!

Step out today and watch God work!!!

New beginnings

As we start our new chapter at EXP Realty I am reminded that we are to always put our hope and faith in God. These new beginnings help us to lean into Jesus even more.

This has been a several month process but as we prayed about it we know great things are ahead. Stretching and growing are part of the process and this is never easy. When we step out in faith then we can see God move. Even when we don’t know what’s on the other side of the water.

Keeping our eyes on Jesus we will be just fine!

God is on the Move

God is on the move everywhere, are you?

It seems that when I am praying with anticipation and expectancy that my eyes are open and anxious to see God move.

When we step out in faith and pray for miracles to happen, do we really expect to witness them? I would say yes!

We have to seek Jesus and his face- when we do we have prepared our heart to look for Gods hand to move!

I am reminded that each day is a gift from God and we are not promised tomorrow. I want to value each and every day with God and others I love!
