faith is much easier...


Faith is much easier to talk, faith is very difficult to walk.

It's easier to be faithful when things are going my way.

These are things I'm noticing within myself as my chances of keeping baby j diminish.

I am not faithless.

I know gods will, will prevail. the thing is, i'm not sure gods will and what i want to be gods will are the same thing...

  1. That is always the sticking point isn't it? But it is easier to believe that even if it's not what we want...it may be what we need eventually.

  4. I'm so glad that you found my blog so that I can now read yours!

    Kent and I are high school youth ministers and at youth group last night we studied Joshua 2. My favorite part of the chapter is the end, when the 2 spies report back to Joshua. Instead of telling Joshua all about the # of soldiers, weapons, or size of the wall (typical war info you would send spies for), they told Joshua all about how big their God is and that even the people of Jericho are disheartened by knowing how wonderful and powerful our God is. They didn't need or care to know how big Jericho's army was, all they needed was to know how big their God was and that He would work out the rest.

    I've been thinking and praying on that a lot in the past 24 hours and it of course immediately came to mind when I read this post. :)

    Joshua 1:9- "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

  5. Oh this is soooo true! I hope you get to keep your little one, and it's good to have faith in that, but in the horrible event that he's taken from you, have faith that God knows and loves each of us and will lead us on the path that will ultimately bring us the most joy and growth. Praying for you!

  7. I'm so sad. I am sorry. Pain and disappointment are part of life yet hard to accept still. God knows our pain. I hope you're all right. I'm sending my prayers.

  8. Your faith will guide you to happiness. Even if you and god are "arguing", your faith will find a way for you to listen to what he says.
