… some trust in chariots, some in horses …

“Breaking from the old, launching out into the new, always means inner turbulence and outer turbulence. Anybody who tells you that if you get into the boat with Jesus everything’s going to work out well forever after, just doesn’t understand the faith. There is always turbulence. Inner questions. Wondering. And then, eventually, the storm ceases. There is calm. The elements are quieted, and there is an inner, living hush. And we know Jesus in a new way, in the intimacy of the boat, and we are never as fearful again.”

I got this from a friend (a dearest dearest friend who has been faithfully praying and walking with me on this journey),  who sent this to me at a time we both needed that assurance about our calling, our next step, how we longed to have our family’s blessings to release us as we take that step with a leap of faith.  This encouraged and still encourages me as His door fling wide opened and He beckons me to walk in without fear.  Faith, all you need is a mustard seed size of faith!!  Come on, my child!!  I have marvelous things waiting in store for you!!

Psalm 20 flooded in every single vein of my body:

1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
3 May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
4 May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.

May the LORD grant all your requests.

6 Now this I know:
The LORD gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
9 LORD, give victory to the king!
Answer us when we call!
