  1. Dear Anna,

    Wow! What an awesome post–and I love the Scripture you include! This is so, so true–the perfect way to describe our faith journeys! Thank you so much for sharing! Blessings!

  2. This really spoke to my heart. I’ve been having that feeling of walking even when I don’t know the way yet, and this captures that so perfectly.

  3. Such beautiful words, friend, saying what I feel but can’t come up with words for! I love, love, love the “I keep putting my foot down and every time there is something solid underneath”. Truer than true. That’s just like Him, isn’t it? To reveal Himself in the reality our blinded eyes can’t see. Thank you do much for sharing!

  4. Beautifully written. I can see your heart through your words. Yes, there is something new coming. I feel it too.

  5. This really says it all for me, right now! I am walking by faith… I’m in my 7 week of my 4th pregnancy. I have two beautiful daughters. My 3rd one miscarried at 6 weeks, early pregnancy and 3 years ago. Afterward I suffered from debliitating anxiety. Here I am again, I took that step. Everyday it’s like walking a tight rope, head up and one foot in front over the next, until I reach the platform. I PRAY, that God shine HIS light on that platform! I’m walking by faith…

  6. That is so beautiful! I am in a very similar place. The truth of your words is life and healing to my tender soul! Thank you!

  7. God has truly gifted you with a way of words. Such lovely true writing!

    We all have to walk by faith each & every day. What does that look like– “Keep putting my foot down and every time there’s something solid underneath. Maybe that’s what walking by faith really looks like, arms held out for balance, eyes off the ground, inching forward. Just putting a foot down over and over and over again until God-light hits the road. I just love that!!

    I, also, do music (special) at my church–sign language to music. Certain songs just bring out the God in me & people see me wide open & bare–showing all emotions. That is what God wants us to do bare it all for Him who bore all for us!

  8. So good to see you here, Anna. Love the way you put it: can’t keep your head above water and your toes in the sand at the same time. Great metaphor for letting Him carry you where He wants you to go.
