We Can Trust Him With Our Scars

On a walk the other day, I found a leaf with a hole in the middle of it.  I held it up to the sun and the sun shined perfectly through it. It reminded me of the scars we all have.  It was a great illustration of how wounds and scars tell our story and how telling our story is part of our story.  The message from that leaf didn’t stop there. I carried it with me for the rest of the walk and eventually ended up at a pond.  I felt I needed to release it into the peaceful …

We all have good days and bad days, hard seasons and seasons full of happiness. It is in those hard times we especially need each other. Support, a …

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 …
