A Step of Faith (even when outwardly everything looks unchanged)

And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansedLuke 17:12-14

Just a thought to ponder this morning; when these ten turned and walked away to carry out Jesus’ instruction, they were still visibly leprous. It was after they stepped out in obedient faith that they were healed. I believe the Lord honoured their faith.

Sometimes (more often than not!) we need to take that bold step of faith, even when it looks as though our outward circumstances have not changed. If the Lord has said it, believe it. Trust Him. Start walking in faith and see what He does!!

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
