Take a Step

My Mercies are new every morning, My Word declares, but I would also like you to consider that My Mercies…

  • Never grow old
  • Never wear out
  • Never cease!

I love you with an everlasting love and that love encompasses all you do, who you are, and what you will become. You are not to feel that you have no resources when you step out in faith. Stepping out in faith is not like stepping off a cliff–you never lose your footing, rather, you increase it. I give you a sure footing with a Rock on which to stand. I cause you to leap upon mountains with the agility of a deer.

But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, it all begins with a step.

Many say a ‘leap of faith,’ but I say no, take a step. Just a simple agreement to move forward, trusting that I will again lead you to another step

and then, another

and another

Every time you take a step of trust, I will always have your next move waiting, cued and ready…

Are you ready?

Then let’s prepare with My Mercy. My Mercy enables you to shed and shake off all that might hold you back. My Love encompasses you and encourages you to move forward…

with a STEP

Courage to Soar

Those who have the courage to follow Me must also have the courage to stay where I place them, for the length of time I would have them to stay there. This is to receive the instruction, message, teaching and growth that I have intended for them to receive.

My Word is truth, but if it is mixed with logic, it doesn’t always retain it’s full meaning. Logic is not required when “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb. 11:1) Logic will pull you down to the flesh, when I would have you to soar in the Spirit.

My Word is strength, power, deliverance and truth. My Word is stable in times of chaos and unrest. My Word is your rock on which I would have you to stand. As you all know a rock is higher than the earth. When you stand on it you are raised above the level of those of the earth. Stand on My Word and when you see those around you leaning, you will remain ramrod straight and will not falter. (see Ps. 61:2)

  • Strength and courage are required to follow Me, but the road will be easy if you do not try to depend upon yourself as your guide, rather, rely on My instruction alone to guide you.

I have never stopped loving you–ever! Though there are times when it feels to you as though I were absent and had. But, as My Word says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” (Heb. 13:5) and when at these times you feel as if I had left, I would have you to return to My Word and remind yourself of My promises.

  • I give you times of weakness so that you may become strong through your weakness. When you are weak, then I am proved strong. (see II Cor. 12:9)

My children, cling to Me and I will cling to you; as a mother embraces her child with all the love, protection and fierce joy she has in her heart. For a mother loves her child far less than I love you.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb. 11:1  kjv

“–for He hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE.” Heb. 13:5b  kjv

“And He saith unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” II Cor. 12:9a  kjv

“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. for thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.” Ps. 61:2-3  kjv

“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always before me,; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” Ps. 16:7-8
