True faith is knowing we serve a loving God who is guiding us and fighting with us every step of the way.
True faith is choosing to accept that there are things you might not understand, might not be able to witness, or go back in time and experience, but that doesn’t make them any less real.
Faith is knowing that you are a part of the universe and of a plan even bigger than the universe.
The things we say, the stories we have, the love we give—that changes people’s hearts. Even if we might not see that change right away.
I want to please You, and not the world. I want to do things for Your glory and not mine. I want my life to be a book of blessing, a prism that will radiate Your light.
As much as anything, faith is the constant fight within you. Not a resistance or a struggle, a perseverance that accepts the insanity of the task ahead. A sometimes broken soul that wakes up each morning, and just takes the first step.
A relationship does not equal happiness.
I was basically completely ostracized from anyone who didn’t believe what my family believed. Imagine walking out into the world after that?
When my dad was reaching the end of his life, my mother’s Christian friend made a case for him accepting Jesus. Wouldn’t want him burning for all eternity, right?
I’m going to step forward in faith, with confidence, with hope that whatever I face I won’t have to face alone. Because with God in my heart, I won’t.
