  1. Stephanie,
    I want to be following Jesus so closely that He can feel my breath on His neck. I want to be recognized as someone who has been with Jesus, abiding in His presence. I want to be a fisher of men/women. Less focus on the doing…more focus on the being still WITH Him. I needed this!! Beautiful!

    • Bev you need to listen to Stephanies podcast the Jesus led adventure! It has explained what happened to me the journey, Cambodia, a masters with distinction, the scholarships everything it’s all Gods work not me. I’m waiting for the next step for God to show his hand and for Jesus to lead me to my promised land. Please let me know what you think!
      Hope your well, Jas xxx

      • Hi Jas!! Thank you for being such a big cheerleader for my own Jesus Led Adventure! I’m incredibly humbled that God is using me to help you on your own adventure with Him.

  2. Stephanie,
    Thank you so very much. I needed to read this today. Your words of faith spoke to my heart and felt like a gentle hug for my soul. I can exhale when I remember WHO it is for and that it is not through me,but Jesus. ❤

  3. Stephanie,

    Such a rally cry. Society is always looking at what & how much we do. As Christians we should not be concerned with that or man’s applause. We need to focus on who/whose we are. Our prayers should be Lord what do You want me to do? How can I bring you glory in everyday living? My focus is on being the best person I can while showering this world with the light of Jesus. We won’t miss His plan for our lives if we simply stay in communication with & focusing on Him. Keep using the talents He gave you for His kingdom. Don’t worry about man’s applause. You should be waiting to hear “Well done thou good & faithful servant”.

    Blessings 🙂

  4. For He will show me the way of life. Thank you so much for sharing your heart whiles read Gods I received a peace in my heart.

  5. Such a timely reminder. I had just been thinking about finally getting around to my ‘must do’ task of seeking direction for the way ahead, having no clear idea at all and anxious that I don’t! We spend so much time striving and worrying, when every moment is a gift and invitation to just BE with God.

  6. Stephanie it’s so obvious to me God has blessed you with a talent for writing and leading. For a long time He has spoken through you to me. It’s opened up a deeper understanding a different way more than just going to a church. It’s deepened a yearning for being in the flow of Gods plan. Partnering with God and Not just praying to him. It’s handing it my life, future, health, mental health too over to God. It’s harder to do this than just saying it.

    But I feel safe. I feel loved. I feel ok with myself. Of course I still have anxieties, doubts thoughts of whether I’m worthy but after all said and done God and Jesus have met me where I am. Faults and all they still want me. Not because of what I can offer but because of who Jesus is.

    God is using you. I’m following my Hesus led adventure and many here can attest to what miracles have happened for me. I’m in a season of waiting again, a pit stop to learn more. Patience has not been my strongest point however when God moves boy is it grand!!

    Keep churning out these posts and your podcast I honestly glean so much from them!

    Love Jas

    • I’m going to print out your comment and hang it up in my office!! You bless me so much, Jas!! Thank you for taking the time to share these precious and much needed words with me.

  7. I’m finally slowing down..enjoying my days. my life is still super busy daily but it’s all how you handle the journey !! my kids are happy..my home is clean and I’m able to just go thru it a little slower paced.
    God changed my life around a few years ago and at the time I had no idea how to handle it…years later it was a blessing. he often simply puts us where we are to be..and that’s enough .

  8. Stephanie!
    This is exactly where I am! And what I needed to hear from someone else for the encouragement! To do things the way I should do them and not try to be like others. To first be Christ-like, and let Him lead and direct my endeavors. Thank you so much!

  9. thanks for this…I was starting to think I was the only one who didn’t have “the WORD OF THE YEAR”! 🙂 I’m sure it works for many…even the non-Christians around seem to be intent on the idea. But my life seems to need more definition than one word will cover!

  10. Thank you for this message today… It’s my Birthday today & I didn’t have any resolutions for the beginning of the year, & that’s ok. The word came, to ABIDE in Christ. That is my word for the year.
    Lord, thank you for today. Help me live so I can be a reflection of you in me.
    Amen. ❤️⚓️✝️
