“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” ~Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)
Faith is living hopeful through places where there seems to be little evidence of possibility taking place. As I walk through the challenges of my life – often without evidence of the anticipated & with visions FAR from view, I remind myself that this is indeed a faith walk. The real WORK-REMAINING faithful to my convictions & philosophy for daily living through the SEEMINGLY blind spots.
“Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have WORKS, is dead…”~James 2:17 (NKJV)
OK – so faith, by way of my willing participation has me in the midst of – I DON’T KNOW…yet, I am CONFIDENT that a WORK of the Spirit is sharpening, sculpting & developing SOMETHING “other worldly” within me…I am sure of this.
I am not sure that having faith means that ALL of my heart’s desire will come into fruition. I don’t believe that EVERYTHING that I WANT/DESIRE is in DIVINE ALIGNMENT – nor do I think that I just made a FAITHLESS statement. I am – however, EXPERIENCING the CREATION of something GREATER than I ever imagined! I KEEP diving in clueless, willing to TRUST an invisible eternal God all the way!
Life is an AMAZING journey…full of unexpected unpredictable occurrences. Faith continues to convince me of her faithfulness!!
What about you, how’s your faith working?
Live wise, live well and live whole. ~Storm
