Love Lifted Me

“I was right on the cliff-edge, ready to fall, When God grabbed and held me. God’s my strength, he’s also my song, And now he’s my salvation. Hear the shouts, hear the triumph songs in the camp of the saved? “The hand of God has turned the tide! The hand of God is raised in victory! The hand of God has turned the tide! I didn’t die. I lived! And now I’m telling the world what God did. God tested me, he pushed me hard But he didn’t hand me over to Death. Swing wide the city gates-the righteous gates! …

He Hears

It had been one of those weeks. Sometimes I had felt as if I could hardly breathe. I had been weepy and my emotions were raw. Usually, when I feel this way it is because I was tired from lack of sleep or exhausted from traveling or even tired from doing “good” things that I knew were worthwhile. Sometimes I felt something else was going on. It involved the spiritual realm; I knew God was up to something involving me in some way especially if I was being obedient to God’s leading. A spiritual battle was raging and I felt …

Out of the Comfort Zone

One of the privileges God has allowed me in my life is the opportunity to give women a platform and then watch them step out in faith and obedience when God places something on their heart. This month I have that privilege once again. Grace Workman joins us as guest poster for the month of March and I know you will be blessed as she shares her journey of trusting God through the road bumps and detours that comes with change and transition. I can definitely relate, and because change is hard I’m sure many of you will too. Let’s …

Living Dangerously Couldn’t Get Any Safer

  I’m so sorry…yes I realize that Faith post Friday has become Saturday.  That was not my plan and without going into all the reasons why I will just rest in knowing that I believe it was exactly what God designed it to be.  I spent this week heavy and deep in trying to accept “change”.  Trying to embrace it but knowing that it was far from where I wanted to go.  This has been far longer than a week, in fact it is beginning to feel more like a season.  I often wonder why change is so difficult to …

All Eyes on ME please !

Hello , everyone …It is Faith Post Friday and for the month of October I will be posting.  My name is Carla Covert.  I am part of the MJOF Ministry Team.  I am the Event Coordinator for the My Journey of Faith Encourage Retreats.  Just a small bit about me before we dive right into it…I am married , 20 years this past July, and have 2 boys, Duncan 16 and Blake 12.  I think that is important for you to know about me because there is so much God has and continues to teach me through my marriage and …

Hidden Grief

Hey friends! I’m back for my last blog post on Invisibility. So far I’ve covered Motherhood, Social Media and Unanswered Prayer. Whew! Who knew there were so many ways we can feel unseen? These have been heavy topics so I really wanted to write something light hearted today. But after praying and giving it a lot of thought, I felt strongly that God wanted me to share with you about grief, particularly “hidden” grief. Hidden grief is a deep sadness we carry with us daily. It’s buried underneath smiles, productivity, serving and even laughter, but it’s always there under the …

Many Believed

We, here at My Journey of Faith Ministries, are so excited to be with you as summer comes to an end and fall quickly approaches. This time of year always gives me a sense of excitement, a sense of fresh starts and possibility. I have many favorite stories in God’s Word, but those who know me know that one of my personal favorites takes place in John 4:1-42.  In this chapter we see Jesus leave Judea, and travel in His usual radical way…taking the path avoided by all Jews, the path through Samaria.  On this path, He stops at a …

Life from Bones by Heather Patterson

I began the year on a cloud that carried me for many months. We were still tan from a trip to Disney World. My dad’s January surgery went great and if April’s went as well, he would be cancer free by May! I had a book released about finding our identity in Christ, then was allowed to speak to over 100 women at my church on it one night, then teach it through a 10 week study. My husband was doing great in his school, and we entertained thoughts of all the different places we could move once he graduated. …

Seeing His Mastery by Brittany Glaze

“Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas. Storms will show your mastery; where losing sight of land, we shall see stars.”  ~Francis Drake What a prayer! The magnitude and intense belief to even pray this is something to be appreciated. This dares me, dares me to be free. It dares me to question if I’m living in the freedom I am promised through salvation. Free to trust God and all His mastery! The past year, 2015, was full of wider seas, storms, and loss of sight of land. Unlike Drake, I had not prayed this …
