ONE GOD, ONE DESIGNER, OUR STORIES

ONE GOD, ONE DESIGNER, OUR STORIES

"MY STORY MONDAY" (week 1) 

(That's me, Deborah-brown hair on the right on Daniel's boat on the Sea of Galilee. And that is a friend Sandra, on the left.) Yes, I also lead trips to Israel once or twice a year. 

Spirit Lead Me

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it. Is 30:21

I created the “Spirit Lead Me,” design after hearing the song, Spirit Lead Me, by Hillsong. When I heard it the first time I froze. The Holy Spirit broke me! I am to love and trust Him in the deepest and darkest places/pain. This I knew, but He was asking for 100% surrender. Not a regular church goers attendance type faith, but a faith that could and would go to the depths and still trust HIM, no matter what.

Then He broke me all over again, when I heard it on the Sea of Galilee, Israel. The same boat that Hillsong recorded it on. Right!!!!

So fun and super blessed. I’m a friend of Daniel, the boat operator on The Galilee. It’s called The Worship Boat. He operates the only Christian boats on the Sea of Galilee. If you ever go to Israel and get to The Galilee, ask for Daniel’s boat.

Back to the words, throughout the song God just kept reminding me, "For I am Yours’ and you are mine.” We belong together no matter where on earth He leads me. He is forever guiding my steps and when I fail, He picks me up, straightens me up and says; “now look up and see your deliverance?”

So, the compass was an easy design and reminder. HE WILL DIRECT our steps, paths, and oceans and even to the depths, He will be our guide. He will see you through whatever and HE will never leave or abandon you, even in the depths…

Striving daily to live in HIS presence, I love wearing the “Spirit Lead Me” compass. It’s not magical or anything, but I can reach up and be reminded that even though the “wheels” fell off today, He has me and will not allow me to be down one minute too long. Stay in prayer and keep your spiritual eyes wide open to see what HE wants you to see.

LYRCS BY HILLSONG:

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
