Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Are You PUSHING or Being PUSHED?

BirdIf You CanMark9_23


















      Mama Sparrow looking on from the rooftop!

Deuteronomy 32:10-11

10 In a desert land He found him,
       in a barren and howling waste.
       He shielded him and cared for him;
       He guarded him as the apple of His eye,

11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest
       and hovers over its young,
       that spreads its wings to catch them
       and carries them on its pinions
[the tips of its wings].




Some of us need a PUSH in order to take flight - and some are doing the pushing of others who need a little PUSH themselves!

Whether you are like an old mother sparrow, pushing, or a baby wren being pushed ....

Wow!!! I'm going to show this to my husband, and my grandkids. What a heartfelt picture of how God 'pushes' us. Without fear of flying, we'll never be able to soar! Glory!!!

Denise Hughes said...

Wow. I love these verses - and the images of the birds and the birdhouse. Yes, sometimes I feel as though I am the one doing the pushing, and other times I feel as thought I am begin pushed. Thank you for your thoughtful and encouraging words today. And thank you, especially, for the prayer. Blessings to you today.

Very good. At times we need to give a push and at other times we need to receive one. That is why God puts other people into our lives! Good post and video.

Been pushed more times than I can count... pushed two of my own out of the nest in recent seasons. It's been the hardest learning of my life; the best as well.

Even so, push me, Father. I trust your wind!

Gave me goose bumps! What a beautiful picture of our Father and how He knows what we need to become what He knows we can be.

Thanks Stephanie, this was such a special one.
