My dear readers, I have been KNEE DEEP in a major project and haven’t had much time to write. I apologize for that and will commit to writing at least once per week. Yesterday I went to church, and while at church the minister gave a message about faith. I was always raised to believe:
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things now seen.”
Now I don’t attend a worship service every Sunday, but right now in my life I practice my faith more than I ever have. In other words, I truly trust that God will take care of me and my family and I leave most things in God’s hands. Whether the matters are financial, emotional or spiritual, I have conversations with God and after the conversation I let it go.
The minister talked about how his wife was hospitalized and he was so distraught that his son had to pray for him. After the prayer, he felt the presence of the Holy Spirit and when someone asked him to call the nurse to check on his wife’s condition, he picked up the phone and then rather than calling, he hung up and stepped back and said, “She’s alright.” The minister told us we don’t have to check up on God… allow God the space and opportunity to do his work.
What is faith to you? How do you practice your faith?
