Random Thoughts Tuesday

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

Faith is an area I consistently work to improve.  Frequently, I get in the way when I ask for The Lords help by trying to control the situation myself in some way.  When will I learn.  Some things are simply out of my control and best left in the hands of our father.  Self-development is one of the many things I do to stay inspired and I need continuous improvement in my walk with Faith and knowing when to let go, and let God.

What does Faith look like? -  I read this article this week and while I cannot relate to all of it, I particularly relate to her comments when she asks does faith look like The Pope or Mother Theresa and what she means when she questions her own faith because of anxiety.  I often ask myself these very same questions and beat myself up thinking I do not have enough faith because I still get feelings of anxiousness about certain things and situations.  Does it mean I am not faithful?  Like she said, the only support I need is from God.  Nothing else matters.

Feel like-  I think if I ever develop the ability to live life without a single worry and walk completely on faith that I would feel 100% at peace all of the time which to mean sounds like I will be feeling pretty happy :)

Sound like-  I think the sound of the faith is the ability to hear God.  I believe I have this gift as I am able to know when enough is enough.  The spirit comes over me and gives me the much needed balance to let go.

Act like- Hebrews 11:1 which I wrote at the beginning of this post.  Acting in faith is having 100% confidence in what you can and cannot see.  I try to live by this passage in my own walk with faith but admittedly, I sometimes fail.  This is where the self-development comes in.  I desire to always act like someone who has the confidence in what I hope for and the assurance about what I do not see.  Not sometimes.  All of the time.  In any and all situations.  But is that realistic?

Are you faithful?  Does being faithful mean you are free of any and all anxiety and worry.  If so, I know I have a long way to go but I hope with God's grace, I will one day get there.
