A Step of Faith
Welcome to my blog.

We will be talking a lot about faith in God and his word and how it applies in every area of our lives. I have found that any success in my Christian life is based on my decision to believe God to be truthful in what He says and absolutely consistent in what He does. That is, in my estimation, the definition of faith.
As I prepared to launch this blog, I spent a great deal of time praying and examining my heart in an effort to determine my motives and expectations. Putting myself ‘out there’ in this way is terrifying. What if someone who knows me reads this? They’ll know me as a fault-ridden and weak person. To save time, I’ll go ahead and admit it, now.
I am no one special, nor have I any particular credentials or endorsement. I am no more qualified to write about the walk of faith, or the things relating to the Christian life, than any other Christian. I admit this without shame, for all of us were sinners until we came to the Lord in repentance, and all of us walk out our salvation the same way- by faith.
In short, I am an everyday Christian who has spent the past fifty years finding out a little of what a Christian life of faith is all about.
That is the point!!!!
The faith walk is not a single experience, but rather a series of experiences that accumulate layer by layer to form the bedrock upon which the substance of a well-lived life of faith is built. It is both an impossibly difficult and an incredibly rewarding way to live.
This project began as a book of short devotional thoughts to give to my children and grandchildren in the hope they would read and remember some of the things their Dad and I have tried to teach them. We want so very much for them, the most important of all is how to walk daily in faith and victory. It is simple, but not easy, for the walk of faith is alien to the world’s way. It requires retraining of the mind and a constant renewal of determination.
My purpose is to share from my own experience in the hope that you, the reader will find encouragement in your walk of faith. I’m looking forward to this, another, journey in the faith life. I hope you’ll join me and we’ll discover together what God has in mind for us.
