    Walk By Faith, Not By Sight...song by Keith and Kris Getty

    We take so many things by faith each day. Whether it be taking the train, bus, driving or having that meal to that we have. We may walk in to a take away and place our order. All this is done by faith, as we expect things to happen and take it for granted. The same is our life...

    Trust Your Instinct To The End, Though You Can Render No Reason.

    How different would our lives be if we all followed Ralph Waldo Emerson advice, “Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason?”   My friend once told me that he has 1 regret in life and that is not getting up from a church meeting...

    I Having Living Faith.

    Living faith stands not in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Let's face it, if you put your faith in what you know, even in the Bible, sooner or later you are apt to find someone who knows more than you do. If you do not have living faith, someone will be able to...

    Without

    I have lived without  faith, and with faith. The later being the more challenging.  Faith is certainly the main staple of the essence of my being now.  I will never look back. Faith is going up to the well, and laying hands on that pump, and...

    Cranky

    I can't do fear very well, I get cranky and mean. I'm not very nice when I'm mean, I'm....mean. I hate being mean. Faith is a wonderful thing, having faith, giving faith, they're both brilliant!

    Why do people fake who they are .

    ..... It pains me terribly . It's so rude. Don't you respect or value another's time. As you sow , so shall you reap. Have the courage to put your fears , whatever they maybe , aside . If you can't be honest , well that just makes you a liar.

    I Deserve the Best...

    When I trust that things will work out with the situation at hand it does. When I'm fearful, it makes things harder and in the end it still works out because after a while a part of me asks "why aren't you trusting?" I relax and everything works out.
