mariaglassford Happy Fathers Day to the best dad in the world. He's loved us well, endlessly taught us and he's given much. He's patient, funny, selfless, loving and wise. He's the best Boppa and his grandkids are absolutely crazy about him. Words cannot do justice to the man that I've been blessed to call dad. I love you @foredjm and am so very grateful and thankful God chose me to be your daughter! 1w

mariaglassford April 16, 2015, I couldn't write fast enough in my journal as God was using Matthew 14 to so clearly speak to me. The end of this chapter is recounting Jesus walking on water, and Peter doing so also, in faith, after asking Jesus to command him. I prayerfully wrote down that day, "What is my water and where am I called to walk out in faith?" That same morning I had bible study at our womens ministry and my prayer request was along the lines of being challenged to trust Him and step out in faith, yet I wasn't sure what He was preparing me/us for just yet. And asking for prayer that I would be obedient to his stirring.
Then 3 days later, Sunday, April 19th came and in our Walking with Jesus series at @summitswfl, @jaminstinziano spoke on Matthew 14. The SAME. EXACT. PASSAGE. that only hours earlier the Lord was clearly in the process of using to stir my heart.
A little over a week later, @kirtglassford and I heard about a specific situation regarding a 5 month old who needed a temporary family. All the stirring had led to the clarity we had been praying for and we quickly started the process to become a host family for @safefamiliesswfl (a ministry/support system to prevent children from entering the system, by providing temporary care, while their parents are in a crisis situation.) Through an absolute miracle and truly Gods grace, we were able to complete the entire process in just a matter of days.
Which leads me to our first little one... Meet sweet baby Cayden! Last week, only hours before we got the call that he needed a home, I had written down 1 John 3:18, "Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and truth." A perfect word for the new journey that was about to begin. God has been so unbelievably faithful, and now, as we've "stepped off the boat", were continuously reminded that Jesus IMMEDIATELY reached out when Peter called out. This is the season were living in--it may be hard, painful and even uncomfortable at times--but were trusting Jesus each step of the way knowing we serve an abundantly good, all knowing and loving Father.
