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.
“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.
What an encouraging email – thanks my dear friend! Words that are so easily said, sometimes so hard to action. I need that reminder- I’m so sad that Carla is so harsh towards me. Haven’t seen her or Pepper in weeks. But maybe, just maybe, she will see the counselor I’ve been seeing this week….
