What the Poster said

Faith.

Will.

Trust.

All very small words.

Yet words that are also filled with so much meaning.

I read a poster the other day that made me stop and think about these small, yet very powerful words.

It read:

“Faith is not believing that God will do it, It is KNOWING that He will.”

For me this was not only a timely read, it was also a promise from God, a reminder of His forever, never ending, extensive and extravagant love for me.

Oh, I most certainly believe that God can; that He is all-powerful and faithful. However it is when the challenges of life arise that I find I struggle with the depth of my belief, and, as disappointing as it is, my actions display that I struggle the most in my personal faith journey. I have every confidence and strength to stand in faith for others and even hold expectation of witnessing a breakthrough happening. I easily get excited to what the future will hold…. For others.

Why can I not be so strong when it comes to my own journey?

And so this leads back to why the poster was saying so much more and challenging me so very deeply. Yes it explained my faith well for others, however I felt that God was reminding me of this for ME. Reminding me that I can stand in faith for the journey before me, and trust that He has a purpose and plan – for me.

And there it was – Trust.

My real struggle.

Trusting that God is faithful. The awakening in me that trust in God is what will allow me to move my faith from my head to my heart. This is what needs to happen.

Trusting that God will; trusting that I am found worthy enough; trusting that I am of value. Trusting that God loves me.

The reading of this poster was just the beginning, as I now work towards learning to trust more in God I hope that I can transfer this skill towards growing my Faith, my faith to knowing that He will.

Because the truth is God WILL.

Whatever the answer may be, it WILL be whatever is best for me and for my journey.

I need to remind myself each and every day that God loves me.

And God loves you.

How wonderful is His love for us!

Let’s smile and share His love.

Book DEBrief

"Undaunted" by Christine Caine

A book I will read again!

The story that Christine shares is personal and impacting, full of honesty and openness. I related to so much of what she had to share and was extremely encouraged.

Christine is with no doubt a woman of faith, but it is the way in which she openly shares the journey of faith, including the thoughts of doubt and question and the wonder of how it will all work out that for me was the greatest encouragement.

I often feel like a lesser woman of faith when I begin to doubt, yet what I learnt from this real life story is that is the action which we take that will bring us closer to the purpose we were designed for.

I was also reminded that, from my own dark and depressive experiences, I can be used to empower and equip others; but it takes the desire to not only want change but to hang on tight to it, grip it well and move forward with it every day.

This is my first Christine Caine book, one I picked up from a recommendation, and I am so glad that I did. Christine writes in an easy to read fashion, but I found it was her honesty and humbleness before God that captured me.

I do recommend this book as a great read, but be prepared to be challenged whilst also very encouraged to become someone who is UNDAUNTED!
