Listening to Inspiration

God wants to help us on the path of life. His Spirit can give us direction and help if we are willing to act on that direction. Acting on positive thoughts and feelings helps us receive more direction, because we show God that we are a person He can trust and use. As we act on those things and see how God is directing us, our faith and confidence in Him grows.

Your Confidence in Impressions

I am amazed at how our life has fallen into place just by acting and taking a leap of faith. Heavenly Father is aware of us. It’s been so scary, but has made me be a stronger woman.
