Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.
~ Elton Trueblood ~
Faith is the refusal to panic.

Faith is like electricity. You can’t see it, but you can see the light.

I have had people ask me questions like this….
Aren’t you worried about this???
Don’t you stress about that???
I really use to be a worry wart when I was a kid but that was to be expected I didn’t have a regular childhood. Aside from that period, even when I wasn’t actively following Chirst. I have always had faith. When I was a teenager I quit going to church. I had asked Jesus in to my heart. I had asked my church to help to finish raising me in a Godly way but it didn’t stop me from walking out and doing what I wanted.
I think that I had it better then my girlfriends that I hung out with becasue none of them had been raised in a church. None of them knew Jesus. I didn’t realize at 14 that I was suppose to disciple them. I was just a self centered kid. My teenage years were a little wild. We did things that I am surprised now when I look back on them that we survived. Times were different back then but it was still not wise to hitchhike or go to guys houses and drink.
For me though I knew that God was with me. I knew he didn’t like what I was doing. I knew that Jesus was unhappy and probably sitting on his throne shaking his head and asking his dad, “Remind me again why we are saving her?” But no matter where I was, what I was doing, who I was with, I knew he was with me. I knew that as perturbed as he was with me he was with me. He had to be….I had FAITH that he was there.
Faith offers a great gift of peace. The stronger you are in faith the more at peace you are. I believe it whole heartedly and I live it. 🙂
HOW STRONG IS YOUR FAITH??
Faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. ~ Romans 10.17~
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. ~Hebrews 11;1~
