Perhaps today you feel that you don’t have much FAITH…
No one ever plants a seed without a little faith that it will grow someday…
One will water and wait patiently and expectantly for the sprout to make it’s first grand appearance. The REWARD is exhilarating. You feel so glad that you labored and watered patiently. The miracle of a little seed coming to life is still amazing.
Faith grows in little steps. It takes a little patience to let it grow. Each trial along the way yields greater faith… it grows even though you don’t see and feel it.
Faith isn’t an emotional feeling either… you don’t really feel it, but it’s what makes you take the next step, the next breath…. it’s an act of trusting in something GREATER to help you through.
Just keep doing what’s RIGHT even though you don’t feel like it. Feelings always feel like quitting. Faith says… take ONE more step.
To be ready for the next trial in your life, make sure to include reading of the Word of God DAILY so that you do not become weak.
P.S. If you have time, read the poem on “Faith” below.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” ~ Romans 10:17
Faith [a poem to share]
Increase our faith so we may see
What you’re doing in our lives
And all that we’ll accomplish in you
So our faith begins to rise
We need to be reminded, Lord,
Of the small mustard seed
And how the same amount of faith
Moves mountains if we believe
As we walk in pure obedience
With confidence in you,
Our faith begins to grow and flourish,
Bearing more abundant fruit
We must go beyond the limits
Of our comfort zones,
Our faith is activated at those times
When we walk into the unknown
For it’s when the safety net is gone,
We realize we need our Lord,
When there’s nothing left to fall back on,
We must lean on God much more
And faith is released in our hearts
As we bend our knee to pray;
We shall be strengthened as we walk
And commit to Him each day.
