Stretching Your Faith

There are times we do not understand why God does not answer our prayers the way we expect or wish. In these moments, it is easy to feel discouraged or even question what God is capable of doing in your life. You may feel less like praying altogether. Author Mark Batterson says: "God will keep putting you in situations that stretch your faith, and as your faith stretches, so do your dreams." Musician Jean Watson shares how she found new dreams as she tried fresh approaches to prayer.

Listen to Jean

Jean's faith stretched in refreshing new ways that helped her embrace new life dreams. What new prayers might you have if you believe anything and everything is possible with God? Think big. No limits. God's faithful loving care for us is greater and more constant than we can even fathom. He has better things in store for you than you imagine for yourself. Start today by choosing to prayerfully trust God in increasing ways.
