Fuel Your Walk Friday

Fuel your walk with some Jesus and Joe.

I love Jesus and I love me an iced cuppa fresh cold brew halved with vanilla almond milk. What better way to combine the two and perk up the beginning of your weekend, than to “Fuel Your Walk” with some Jesus and Joe. Once a week, I will be posting a little snippet, thought, quote or question to ponder in relation to your walk with Christ. So grab your favorite mug, pour yourself a delicious cuppa Joe and get comfy as you let this question percolate in your mind:

D.L. Moody said, “A lighthouse does not have a drum beaten or a trumpet-blown in order to proclaim the proximity of a lighthouse: it is its own witness. And so if we have the true light in us it will show itself. It is not those who make the most noise who have the most piety.”

Are you letting Jesus be the source of your light?

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. -Matthew 5:14

Rest in the Most High

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. -Psalm 62:1

In God alone, is where true peace and security is found. Step out of the storm and rest in Him. Let Him be that shelter. For the rest He gives, is like no other. This peace seeps deep down into our bones deeply and completely. It’s not just surface-y. No, it’s the real deal. This peace and security cannot be found in distractions or at the bottom of a bottle. It cannot be found by running or in a bag of potato chips. This peace is found in His presence, and when we dwell in Him, we will experience this profound rest-a rest only He can provide. It can’t be shaken or moved. And no one can take it away. This gift is ours for the keeping.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. -Psalm 91:1

Autumn Pop

It’s Majestic Marvel Monday! Since Mondays can often be one of the tougher days of the week and for many, it means back to the daily grind, what better way to put a smile on your face than to marvel at His majestic wonders! I absolutely love photography! It is both a creative outlet and passion that brings me joy. So, each Monday, I will post at least one photo of God’s majestic marvels I’ve captured. See and be in awe of His creations and beauty!

Here in Alaska, fall is in full effect, with the trees all dressed in color. Gold and orange birch leaves pop amongst the ever green spruce trees. Being quite the sight to see, we set out on another family drive this past weekend, when Autumn Pop was snapped.

“Hear this, O Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God. -Job 37:14

Rick Warren said, “God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls and coal into diamonds using time and pressure. He’s working on you, too.”

As He’s working on you, how will you use the circumstances He’s shaping you with to grow and become more like Jesus today?

Fall’s Fury

As the season starts to change and leaves begin to turn bright yellows and oranges, here in Alaska, I was reminded of a photo I captured last year. It was our first fall in the Last Frontier and I was mesmerized by the autumn colors and the deep, blue-green rivers. I didn’t realize that Alaska had beautiful birch trees, until I arrived. This is one of my favorite fall shots. I’m hoping in the next couple of weeks I can snap some more of God’s heavenly creations!

Corrie Ten Boom said, “The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.”

How are you tapping into God’s almighty power and love?

Fear as an Idol

for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. -2 Timothy 1:7 ESV

Can fear be an idol? This is something I recently began pondering. If we are drowning in our fears, instead of hiding in God, I believe it absolutely can be. When we are in fear, we are not trusting our Creator. And mistrust, is the opposite of having faith. If we are so frightened and wrapped up in our fears, we are not walking in faith-not believing that our Father has everything under control. When our fears are elevated to the point of interfering with our relationship with God, fear has become an idol. We must instead, give these fears to God and choose trust. By handing each thing we are afraid of over to Him, we can rest in peace knowing that he has us. He has our lives and those around us in his palms. This doesn’t mean we won’t have hardships, of course. He, however, will give us the strength to endure those trials, blanketing us with His peace along the way.

So do not fear, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

I snapped this Fall Fireweed shot on a day trip back from our favorite Alaskan beach this past weekend. An unexpected pull over to the side of the road for a quick stop, and we happened upon this gorgeous pocket of landscape with leaves beginning to turn and signs of autumn surrounding us.
