FAITH IS...

... reliance on the certainty that God has a pattern for my life when everything seems meaningless

... remembering I am God's priceless treasure when I feel utterly useless

... depending on the fact that God is Love - not on my ability to figure out the why's in the midst of smashed hopes, reversal, and tragedy

... keeping on when I am dog tired, discouraged, disillusioned, deserted, dusty and dry and I cast on His strength alone

... realizing that I am useful to God, not in spite of my scars, but because of them

... confidence that God is acting for my highest good when He answers "No" to my prayers

... accepting the truth that, in spite of the wreckage and grief I've caused, God who has wiped the slate clean and delights in me

... recognizing that God is the Lord of time when my idea of timing doesn't agree with his

... not a vague hope of a happy here after but an assurance of Heaven based on my trust in Christ's death as payment for my sins

... remembering that, though my way is dark as night to me, God can see and guides me unerringly

... doing the right thing regardless of the consequences knowing God will turn the ultimate effect to good

... the conviction the Promiser keeps His promises.

This really lifted me tonight Kande.  I am printing this to send to my Fiance' who is working very hard right now in Texas to keep our family in comfort.

Aww...

I'am so happy it gave you comfort. I almost didn't put this up, but felt led to. God knew you needed to read this. Now you have made me feel good BH. It is so wonderful to go with the feeling the Holy Spirit gives us and then see why we were to do a certain thing. I hope it helps your fiance' too. You said the right thing about "keeping on". God will help both of you. You are in my prayers.
