Are you believing God for something big right now?

The older I get the more I realize how easy it is to allow doubt to creep. We take past experiences, failures, disappointments and then play them on “repeat” in our head so when it is time to believe in faith or settle into doubt we usually chose the later.

Well, not any more. Not for me. A couple weeks ago at a women’s gathering called Revive I chose to place my feet firmly in faith and hope. Not letting the things of the past dictate my future!

It has been a game changer for me. I think that is part of the reason my JOY and PEACE tank has been filled up. When I finally chose to live in joy and peace instead of doubt, my heart softened towards the Lord and I began hearing his voice again.

I KNOW that God has been speaking to me a lot through music. There is something so healing to our souls about music. This morning on my drive to drop Cason off this song came on.

Would I believe you when you would say
Your hand will guide my every way
Will I receive the words You say
Every moment of every day
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me
Help me to win my endless fears
You’ve been so faithful for all my years
With one breath You make me new
Your grace covers all I do
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me
Well I’m broken- but I still see Your face
Well You’ve spoken- pouring Your words of grace

These words ” Well I will walk by faith. Even when I cannot see. Well because this broken road. Prepares Your will for me.” Resonant deep within me.

There are moments in life where you have to tell yourself. I will walk by faith. I will not fall into doubt. I will walk by faith and CHOOSE to believe God has his best for me and that he is holding me and my desires in the palm of his caring hand. 🙂

Ok, now on to the good stuff. This salad!

So it turns out, when I sit and really try to think of recipes you would want on your dinner table for Thanksgiving it’s harder than I thought! This year maybe I’m in a fog, I’m not sure, but my mind was reaching trying to get some recipes up this week.

Luckily it reached in the right direction with this Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad!

Everything about this salad is dreamy. But I’m also a sucker for shaved brussel sprouts. 🙂

The brussel sprouts are tossed with some fresh arugula, tart pomegranate seeds, sharp white cheddar cheese (I used aged for an extra punch of flavor), tart granny smith apples, and then sweet candied pecans.  All of these flavors go so perfect together. Then it’s drizzled with a fresh light homemade Lemon Vinaigrette, leaving this salad feeling super light on your tummy.

It’s the perfect flavorful side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas, plus its just pretty to look at!

So make sure this baby is on your list! Bon Appetit friends!
