My birthday was last Thursday and you can read about some of it here.  It was a great day.  I am so blessed.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1
I recently discovered this quote by Dwight L. Moody, an American evangelist that lived from 1837-1899,
There are three kinds of faith in Christ:
1. Struggling faith, like a
man in deep water desperately swimming.
2. Clinging faith, like a man

hanging to the side of a boat.
3. Resting faith, like a man safely
within the boat
 (and able to reach out with a
hand to help someone else

get in).

Lord, thank you for another wonderful weekend…a time to rest and worship, a time to reflect and appreciate the wonderful beauty around me…beauty you created in this world.  Thank you for the blessings you have given me…thank you for the opportunity to worship and give you thanks.  Please give me the courage to always have RESTING faith, Lord, courage and faith to know that You are in control, You are in charge, You can and will take care of everything…You have a plan, I need to get out of Your way.  Lord, please bless my family, especially Andy and my parents as they are aging, my siblings and my nieces and nephews…guide them and guard them, give them the courage to seek you in all their endeavors and please keep them safe.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday…God is so good…I am working on my “resting faith”…what type of faith do you have today?

Peace and blessings….
