Your Life - PRAISE Updates

 
When Life Hangs In the Balance
0 2

I just recently returned from an incredible experience with my two sons. The three of us joined a friend who lives in Fairbanks, Alaska, on a hunting trip to Alaska’s North Slope. That’s 9 hours of driving north of Fairbanks, landing us well above the Arctic Circle. What an incredible place!  It felt surreal. There are no trees and no bushes. Nothing more than 6 inches tall unless it’s man-made. We were all amazed how beautiful the sunrise and moonrise were. It was an experience none of us will forget. 

Our trip also had a sense of trepidation with it. Being 9 hours from any real civilization, much less medical treatment, an extra sense of caution permeated our actions. No slacking in the mental department there! 

You never feel more alive than when life hangs in the balance. Much like our recent Fall SHARE here at Praise.  A lot depends on your partnership with this ministry. While much hangs in the balance, we are confident in our God supplying our needs as He did once again last week! Praise God.

  • Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
  • Oh friends, I have something powerful to share with you today. Something that really impacted me recently. I heard Jill Briscoe from World Relief speak at If:Gathering 2017 a couple weeks ago and she spoke about how she struggles with fear. Anyone relate to that? So said her whole life she has struggled with this fear and she was sharing about a situation where she was pleading with God to not have to do something. But, she kept hearing his prompting. So, she took a step forward IN FEAR and after taking the step the courage came. AFTER she took the step. She was not filled with courage and THEN took the step. She had to step forward first.
