Growing Faith

Faith is not believing that God can; it is in knowing God will… 


Have you ever considered that the things we rely on most we don’t actually see or understand how they exactly work? 


We can’t see the air we breathe. 


Except for a few friends who are engineers, we can’t really explain all that is involved when we turn on a light. 


We put the key in the ignition and the car starts right up. 


These things require something on our part that we don’t normally think about. 


We have faith that they will work. 


This faith comes from the experience we have built up from doing these things over and over again for a long time. 


We trust that they will work and don’t really give it much thought. 


That is how our faith works in the other areas of our lives. 


When we trust God with all of our heart, faith can carry us through many situations and seasons that are either uncomfortable or unfamiliar to us… 


Check your experience… 


 “To be vital, faith must be accompanied by self-sacrifice and unselfish, constructive action.” Big Book pg. 93 


Lord let us grow our faith through daily practice in trusting and relying on You, AMEN. 


“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 


 Have a blessed day Y’all!

Turning Troubles to Triumphs

Turning troubles into triumphs… Every day we are faced with challenges. Some, like traffic, are minor and recurring, but others can actually turn into setbacks if we let them. Think about it, how...
