  1. This sounds like such a wonderful book. It can be so hard to take one step at a time. Only as we trust Him and let Him lead us are we then able to be content with each step of the way. Blessings!

    1. You are so right, Joanne, we must remember that life is a marathon, not a sprint. So, let’s enjoy each step of the way… Summer Blessings to you!

  2. God always knows what He is doing if only we can listen. I like the cowboy boot reference since I just threw a cowgirl party online for a friend yesterday. It doesn’t matter about our shoes, as long as our feet carry the gospel of peace.

    1. How fun, Rebecca, that you threw a cowgirl party yesteday! If I had been invited I definitely would have shown up in my cowboy boots! (yes, I know it was online). But you are definitely right, God always knows what He is doing and will reveal His way in His time. Summer Blessings!

  3. Such a beautiful book by Lucinda…I have given two as gifts and the recipients have been so grateful.

    1. Dee Dee, you honor me by giving my book away. Isn’t it grand to be able to share with others “words from the Word”? Btw, the DWELL necklace you won is winging its way to you (by snail mail). Summer Blessings!

  4. Lucinda has such a way with words and encouragement. I have already given away copies and even left one in Scotland for my niece to read. If i win another i know who I will give it to.

    1. Hello Marilyn – looked like you had fun at Summit in San Antonio! Thank you for being a great encourager and for liking “Dwelling Places” enough to give it to friends. I think everyone is in need of an encouraging word, don’t you? Summer Blessings!

  5. Hi Rachel,
    Oh I just loved this post! I’m a planner by nature and like to avoid risks (impossible, I know!) but I’m learning this season that God wants me to trust him for each day — take him at his word and get up and do it all over again tomorrow. I love this excerpt from the book — it sounds amazing!

    1. Author

      Valerie, it is an amazing book. So many of the devotions have spoken to my heart. God’s Word really shines through Lucinda’s words.

    2. Hey Valerie, guess what I’m a plan-ahead gal too (very high “J” on the Myers-Briggs) so all this waiting on God is a great exercise in trust and obedience, isn’t it? Yet I have never found Him lacking. In any way. So hold on to that, girlfriend, and keep doing the next thing. Summer Blessings!

  6. Thanks for sharing about Lucinda’s book. I’ve always loved that Isaiah verse about the blind being led by God along unfamiliar paths. We never think about how scary an unfamiliar path can literally be to a blind person. Love those two steps at the end: Do the next thing, and one step at a time.

    1. Betsy, I’m so glad you liked my lesson from my twenties when I was a teacher for the blind. It certainly helped me get in perspective our need for ONLY the next step. Frankly I’d still love to have everything all mapped out, even now, but I suspect not knowing is a severe mercy from God. Summer Blessings!

  7. This sounds like a wonderful book. Thank you for the chance 🙂

    1. Sue, thanks for reading about the book. I don’t know anything about who will win, but if you do, enjoy the words from the Word. Summer Blessings!

  8. Just what I needed this morning. I like to know what plan B is. God is teaching me to listen more intentionally just for today…He is in control…I need to trust more. Thanks for sharing..God bless.

    1. Bonnie, I am the very same way. Waiting on so much, it seems. I would love to know Plan b-z! But our time of waiting and trusting can build maturity in us. If so, I’m very, very old…. Summer Blessings!
