Beautiful.

"Faith is taking the first step when you can’t see the entire staircase." - MLK Jr.

1st step: accepting that a Higher Power (then a Most High) exists.

2nd step: establishing a connection with God (discerning his Voice above other voices).

3rd step: obedience to his instructions when they align with our will.

4th step: obedience to his instructions when they do not align with our will.

5th step: God shows you the bigger picture (more pieces of the Puzzle aka His Master Plan) that justifies your faith in him when others will question your sanity. This phase is necessary because faithless people (or people behind you on this “ladder”) WILL call you crazy (especially during the next phase)…

6th step: Your faith gets tested via crisis (maybe even continuous crisis). Your willingness to continue to trust God through the crisis shows God how faithful you REALLY are…

7th step: Reward beyond your wildest dream, prayer, etc.

8th step: Repeat as needed on every level until you’ve been tested in all ways and passed into your final graduation (ascension).

9th step: At all times, know what phase of the faith journey you’re in and what phase others are in.

Tasha Cobbs - “Break Every Chain”

Powerful song. If this doesn’t move you, then you’re dead. Sorry. R.I.P. (Or you need the vanilla version from Jesus Culture.)

Love this song! Prefer my choir’s version but this will do. ;-)

Youthful Praise - “Lord You’re Mighty”

Lord You’re mighty*
Lord You’re mighty

[Verse 1:]
Oh Lord how excellent is Your name in all the earth.
You set Your glory above the heavens and the earth.
When I think of all You’ve made, the sun, the moon and the stars.
No praise is high enough to express how great You are.

[Verse 2:]
What a mighty God we serve.
Mighty God we serve.
Angles would bow before the mighty God we serve
What a mighty God we serve.
Mighty God we serve.
Let heaven and the earth adore the mighty God we serve.

Lord You’re mighty
Lord You’re mighty

[Repeat Verse 1:]

[Repeat Verse 2:]

Hallelujah (4x)
All glory
All honor
All praise
All praise
[Repeat:]

To the mighty God we serve.
Mighty God we serve.
Angles would bow before the mighty God we serve.

Lord You’re mighty
Lord You’re mighty

What a mighty God we serve.
What mighty God we serve.
Angles would bow before Him.
What a mighty God we serve

The climax of this song gives me life!

Oh, hey, what a moment You have brought me to?
Such a freedom I have found in You
You’re the healer who makes all things new, yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m not going back, I’m moving ahead
Here to declare to You my past is over in You
All things are made new, surrendered my life to Christ
I’m moving, moving forward, oh

You have risen with all power in Your hands
You have given me a second chance
Hallelujah, hallelujah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, oh

I’m not going back, I’m moving ahead
Here to declare to You my past is over in You
All things are made new, surrendered my life to Christ
I’m moving

Not going back, moving ahead
Here to declare to You, my past is over in You
All things are made new, surrendered my life to Christ
I’m moving, moving forward
Said I’m moving forward, oh yeah

Singing You make all things new
Yes, You make all things new and I will follow You forward, oh
You make all things new
You make all things new and I will follow You forward

You make all things new
Yes, You make all things new and I will follow You forward
You make all things new
Yes, You make all things new and I will follow You forward

You make all things new
Yes, You make all things new and I will follow You forward
