If we want to grow deeper in faith, we need to slow down. See Him when we take time to smell the roses.

12. Have I hit a road bump?   russia-2361186_1920

Faith will help you view the road bumps as speed bumps and help you understand that every unexpected situation in life is a time to slow down, pause, shut down and/or regroup before you zoom back on the highway of life to revisit your dreams and ambitions, learn new experiences and embark on new adventures. Don’t forget to inhale faith and exhale fear on the journey!

11. Do I focus on God or the problem?   

unicorn-2087452_1920

If you haven’t heard: Whatever you focus on expands. Are you focusing on the Big Guy or the Big Problem? Everything in life can be boiled down to two descriptions: A curse or a blessing. Is the situation at hand a curse or blessing? You decide. Can you put your faith forward and begin to label everything as a blessing and not a curse?

10. Does my pain deepen my trust or force me to pull away from Him?  

body-painting-702735_1920

If I pull away from Him, who do I hurt? God or me? Both? Do I hurt those who need to witness my strength, determination, fortitude and faith? If I am the change in the world I want to see, how do I act?

9. Does my faith sustain me in the most trying of times? 

pray-1639946__340

We prayed for well-adjusted, happy children, only to witness our children fall into drug addiction. We prayed for peaceful marriages, only to live through divorce. We prayed for financial freedom only to be shackled with financial ruin. When our tank is on empty, do we see His hand propel us or do we remain so broken in the breakdown lane that we cannot reach our emergency flare gun?

8. Do I practice faith or preach it?

Am I a role model and inspiration to those who are struggling with their faith or have no faith or am I a chatterbox wasting my energy and zapping other people’s energy. In other words, do I walk in high spirits? Do others want what I have? Do I glow in the Lord, especially during a bleak, cloudy day, and afford others to catch a ray of sunshine?

7. Do I believe, really believe, in God’s love?  

 

god-2391848_1280

Do you believe in God’s love when you hear words like “divorce,” “death,” “foreclosure,” “I’ll never forgive you,” “I hate you,” and so many other painful words? How strong is your shield of faith? Can it hold the doubt at bay?

6. How do I grow my faith? 

 

How do I grow my faith? Do you water it? Fertilize it? Use Miracle Grow? After all, faith is a fruit that needs proper tending before harvest. Did you ever notice how gardens grow more beautiful and stronger each year through the loving dedication of the farmer’s hands? You are the farmer. Faith, your fruit. How do you go—grow—for it? Hint: Do you dig deep enough? branch-2029756__340

Pixie Dust New Year

NewYearAnd Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed that very moment.                                                           Angel4Matthew 8:13

This New Year I wish you a coat of faith. One in which you can bundle up in through the winter.  A coat to layer on top of any jacket of doubt.  In the warmer months, one that  you can wrap around your shoulders or waist. 

This New Year I wish you a coat of faith that accommodates every season and every reason that says otherwise. A coat that never mars from age or fades out of style.

Or better yet, I wish you a cropped jacket with a waterfall front, lots of cascading fabrics that you swish about in so others can catch your infectious spirit. After all, what good is faith without fanning it to others? In fact, I wish you a coat of faith that is comfy and extra roomy in case someone needs extra sheltering.

But faith is only the first step. The next step is an action step. In other words, wear your coat of faith, eject the built-in cape when necessary and fly into kryptonite’s face.

Remember Tinkerbell’s everlasting words?  “All you need is Faith, Trust and a little Pixie Dust.”

In other words, when you surrender to God, magical journeys unfold.

NewYear1

I wish you a year full of blessings and magical moments in the New Year ahead that warm your heart with faith and love.

Stay tuned!…until next time…walk by faith not by sight!
