Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, my soul has no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:38
Faith is: Learning God will stretch our money enough to buy groceries and pay all of our bills on time with just John's paycheck when we trust in Him.
Faith is: Learning that God will NOT let me go and that I am His daughter no matter what my feelings are in this moment.
Faith is: Not knowing why I'm quitting my job but being willing to lean on the promises of God and the actions of Matthew as he laid down his life for Jesus.
Faith is: Learning I'm going to be a Children's Pastor even as I struggle with fear and anxiety.
Faith is: Learning I'm going to be preaching in July and still being able to function because God has been preparing me for months.
Faith is: Learning I'm going to give a lesson on Tithes and Offerings this Sunday and despite the nerves I know deep down my Heavenly Father WILL come through for me and give me the words to teach these children why it's not good to rob from God.
...So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
1st Corinthians 2:5
Right now in this moment I'm walking by faith. Learning to take one foot infront of the other even as I don't know if the next step will be available for me. May I never ever shrink back Father. Help me always move forward for You.
Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. James 1:3
What does faith mean to you in this moment, in this season of your life? Is God stretching your faith today?
