Are you a woman of faith who is sick and tired of being sick and tired of your faith not bearing fruit? If you feel stalled and stagnant, like your faith just isn’t growing, this space is for you!
This is a place where you learn how to:
Grow your faith so you can push the boundaries of the trust you have in God and develop your faith in such a way that no godly dream of yours will seem impossible to you.
Study the Bible so that you can increase your faith and boost your spiritual growth,
Make your Christian walk more practical and purposeful as you go about your daily life, even if you are so busy you can’t even stop stop to pee.
Be more intentional about making your marriage happy, productive and powerful as God desires is to be.
So Welcome, welcome, welcome!
My name is Caddabra. Yes, as in abracadabra. I’m serious. That’s my name. No, I’m not joking. I could show you my birth certificate if you’d like. Lol
Believe me when I tell you that my name never fails to be a great conversation starter. So I’m pretty sure that by now you’re curious about how I came to have it, what it means, what life was like growing up with it and all that jazz. Since our friendship is new, I know we’ll get around to it at some point. So I’m in no rush. I want our friendship to be a slow stew.
This blog has been years in coming. I used to write every single week. I had loads and loads of stuff in books, random papers, and Google docs. Nobody was benefiting from it except for me when I go back and read them for encouragement. So I figured it was time someone else benefitted from all the good stuff I’ve been hiding under a bushel.
Well, I am a wife and graduate student. You see, grad school is so demanding that I feel like my relationship with God is getting sidelined. Raise your hand if you feel like life is crowding God out. Yup. You’ve got company. So I started this blog as a means of holding me accountable. Nothing helps you refocus like thinking about others. And nothing helps you grow personally like helping others to grow.
And the truth is that for years I have been thinking about you. Yes, you. Why have you been on my mind?
Because honey, for a while now you have been considering many things in your heart but because of fear you have been hemming and hawing. I have had a burden for you because there is so much you are missing by not stepping out in faith.
I was a freshman in college when I discovered Hebrews 11:6 “For without faith it is impossible to please God and he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.” This verse completely changed my life. Although I had accepted Jesus about three years prior, I just didn’t get what faith was about.
Really trusting God is hard ya’ll.
Fast forward a decade and a half later and I can say having faith in God has been the single most powerful factor in achieving my personal goals and dreams. Since discovering this verse Hebrews 11:6, some seriously amazing things have happened in my life and I want to share them with you.
So The Faith Space is about nurturing your personal faith in God. I want to help you dear sister to trust God with the massive and minute things. You know how those guys jump out of an airplane and depend on flimsy manmade parachute to keep them from crashing to the ground? I want you to trust God just like. To take the leap of faith that you have been wishing you had the courage to do. To abandon all fear and jump. Take the plunge. And refuse to let go like Jacob did.
So give me your hand girl! Let’s go!
I don’t want you to leave here empty handed so I have put together some of my favourite Bible promises to give your faith that well-needed shot in the arm.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. (Isaiah 43:2)
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. (Psalm 34:7)
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? (Matthew 6:25-26)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phillipians 4:6-7)
Here is to a new and improve faith walk with our King, because you my dear sister have been given all the power to live by faith instead of by sight.
