Living by Faith

Faith it until you make it… 

We use faith in one form or another in many situations daily. 

For instance, when we touch a light switch, we naturally assume without much thought that the light will come on. 

Oh sure, a few of us, BUT NOT ME, have engineering degrees and understand all of the mechanics and physics involved in this simple act, but for the most part, folks like me trust that the light will just turn on. 

It’s the same experience in my car every time I turn the key to start it or apply the brakes while driving. 

I have faith, based on my previous experiences, that these actions will bring the desired results. 

The more I experience something, the stronger my faith is. 

It’s the same with our spiritual life. 

The more we spend time in the Word and with Jesus, the stronger our faith grows. 

We can’t buy faith, but we can surely grow it!.

Check your experience… 

“In this book, you read again and again that faith did for us what we could not do for ourselves.” Big Book pg. 70 

Lord, let us grow our faith through daily contact with You and time in Your Word, AMEN. 

 “For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 

 Have a blessed day Y’all! 

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible! 

 How about a daily dose of hope and inspired thought?

Being transparent… Isn’t it nice when it turns out that things and people ARE what they seem? We don’t get to experience much of that today, but it sure is refreshing when...
