Faith

All we need it is the Faith of a little seed.
Are you in a struggle?
Listen to the following song. May the message grow in your heart.

There are times of certainty and times of uncertainty and these times are uncertain for many, that is in the natural eyes. When a leader of a country spends an hour telling his people that times are desperate you know you better have faith in something. God tells us that we will face trials but do not faint but to have faith and understand that these trials are for the refining of our faith. He tells us to be anxious for nothing, in 1 Peter 5:6-9 it says to humble ourselves and cast our anxiety on Him, then stand firm and in His due time He will lift us up. His due time? What is that, in America we want things on our due time, we want to live without challenge and without discomfort but that is not what is told in God's Word. What He does promise is that He will never leave us or forsake us, and that we have the power to overcome the challenges of this world. So how do we become overcomers? In Romans 10:8 the Bible tells us, the word is near you, it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is the word of faith we are proclaiming. He tells us in Mark 11:22-24 to have faith in God, and don't doubt, then you can tell that mountain (issue) to be removed. So what does it take to have that kind of faith, believe He is near, believe He will never leave you, believe that in His due time (perfect time) you will be the victor. It's belief so simple yet so hard because this fallen world can be seen, but God tells us in His word that we walk by faith and not by sight, and He has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. So today take up the Spirit of God, keep his words on you lips and speak to those mountains and do not doubt, just try it and see if your don't feel God near. It's a challenge!Today Lord I reject all fear and anxiety in my life, casting all my cares upon your shoulders who can bear it. I will not be seized by fear of any circumstance as I have the Word on my lips that protects me. I will use my faith every hour today believing and speaking to any issues that come my way to get in line with the perfect will of God. I am the victor and not a victim and you have given me the power to be in command of any situation. Help me Lord as it is by your strength and not mine which I am thankful.

What a lovely, faith building post, Becky. I am praying for your brother. I didn't get this update on my blog about Cindi's passing. I'm so sorry. May God pour out his peace on everyone impacted by this loss and soothe your brother's aching heart as only He can.

Thank you for this post. It definitely helped my perspective to remember that God is sovereign, and that He does not give us a spirit of fear.

Tender blessings to you all,
Becky

Hi Becky,
I've been thinking about you a lot and praying for all of you. How is your brother doing? How are you doing? It's so sad when someone passes away because our hearts long to see them, hear their laughter, and just have that wonderful fellowship with one another. I pray that the Lord would wrap His comforting arms around you and shower you with His peace that only He can provide.

I think there are questions we would all like to ask, but will never be answered, like why did she have to die at such a young age? It sounds like she was a doll and impacted many lives...now she's home with Jesus and you'll see her again and I'll get to meet her for the first time :).

Hold your memories close to your heart, sweet friend, and one day you'll be walking on streets of gold together.

Love, Cori

Preach it! Our Word this morning was on faith also-Heb. 11...timely.
Your post on Cindi was so sad, so sweet and so full of Hope. Hugs and prayers to you all during this difficult time.
