Character Study


Faith found me on the red stairs of the first home I remember. I looked up at the slanted ceiling and asked Jesus into my heart. No one walked me through the process. I knew confession, asking, and believing were the keys I needed to enter His presence forever.

Have I wavered in my faith?

In Him? No.

In others? Eventually, yes. With everyone.

No one is like Him.

He is to the five-year-old me what He will be to the soon-forty-five-year-old me.

He has been my constant companion through my forty years of desert.

He will be with me when I reach the edge of the Promised Land.

Only He can walk me through it.

To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

One Good Thing Every Day: April 2, 2013

Motivation is melting with the snow. The sun feigns warmth as a daunting chill still steals our breath. But, refusing any further hibernation, my husband and I secure our winter garb and walk against the wind. In our steps will be the Spring so slow in springing.
