Faith in What We Don’t See
11 1-2 The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.
3 By faith, we see the world called into existence by God’s word, what we see created by what we don’t see.
Faith is at the forefront for me lately. Our 11 year old was home sick this week with a low grade fever and stuffy nose. Daily I had to have faith that he’s going to get better, that God will heal him and give him the ability to catch up on school work.
Faith is also needed in my sister. She and I are meeting up with our parents today to talk about our concerns about our parents’ present and future needs. My mom has dementia, and my dad is her primary caregiver. There are a lot of concerns on my part, and I feel the family meeting may help us all share our plans and ideas. I have to have faith that even though my sister is moving away from the area she will still be able to help from afar. Not sure how that’s going to look. I constantly have to have faith that my parents are also in God’s hands and it’s not up to me to fix things.
Dear God, You are the Creator of all things. Help me to have faith in your BIGNESS and POWER. Thank you for allowing us to connect with you through Your Word and through others that worship you. Fear is cancelled by faith. Amen.
I know this is a bit of ramble, but I do look at my blog as a journal of sorts and as a record of what is on my heart. I’m linking up today with the Five Minute Friday community. We write for five minutes so that is pretty quick to put thoughts on a page!
