Living by Faith

Scripture tells us that the just will live by faith.  That it is impossible to please God without faith.  

I’ve been a Christian a long time, (39 years to be exact) I should know about faith.    My CD is titled “Living by Faith”.  I should know about faith.  My oldest daughter is a miracle, God has used my “little red-head” to teach me so much, & my son — he’s all boy–has been the cause of many a prayer.  I should know about faith.  We’ve walked through health scares, financial problems & lived in this sin-sick world with the promise that He would never leave us or forsake us.  I should know about faith.  But………

The Lord has been taking me on an amazing journey.  I find that I don’t know about faith like I should.  He’s brought me so far, but I have so much farther to go.  Honestly, I fret instead of pray.  I worry instead of trust, & fear often stalks me like a monster from the shadows. 

It’s funny how God uses moments in our life to illuminate & shine a spotlight on our hearts.   In the brightness of His scripture my heart needs an overhaul.  I feel like the father in scripture who asked for Jesus to help his child.  ” I believe, help my unbelief!”
