Once again, a tobyMac song. This is another one of my favorites, and I just thought it speaks to what I’ve wanted for my blog. I want God to steal the show, and this not to be about me. If anything here touches anyone, I know that it wasn’t because of what I wrote; it’s what God spoke through me.
My journal entries are basically me talking to God; kind of like written prayers/one-sided conversations. Not that God doesn’t speak back, but from my experience, so far, He hasn’t actually taken my journal and written in it…
Anyway…last night, as I was journaling, I began to think about how unfaithful humans are…about how unfaithful I can be. And as I wrote, mostly Scripture (because I feel that the Psalms were written by me in my prayers. They all fit my feelings in life situations!), God gave me peace. Perhaps you need some peace today. Well, here is a reminder about the faithfulness of our God!

Sheep…they’re amazing creatures. They know and obey the voice of their Shepherd. They’re susceptible to being eaten alive at all times, but they have FAITH in the ability of their shepherd. They don’t follow anyone but the one they’ve been trained to…
Personally, I like this cover, but there are plenty of others.
In His Steps Book Review
This book is wonderful. In fact, I think that every single Christian in the world today needs to read this book and follow the guidelines in this book. If you’ve already read it, good for you. Lend your copy to everyone you know. If you haven’t… read it. In fact, I want you to read it so much that I did a little searching on Amazon.com and found it free for Kindle here and less than a dollar here in paperback. And, in case you are wondering, I don’t have anything to do with the sale of In His Steps.
The story in this book is not only amazing and wonderful in itself, but it also is a great book for Christians, encouraging us to step out in our faith and to ask ourselves the question “What would Jesus do?” before doing anything. I’ll admit that this saying has become rather trite, but it’s still worth using to help make decisions.
