Did I Ever Tell You...
...it's a HUGE perk to have a husband who is a massage therapist? The kids & I were all spoiled with massages today. What a great way to spend the afternoon after a great morning of praise & worship & the Word of God.
In other exciting news, Delaney got the part of Shprintze in Fiddler on the Roof! Shprintze is the fourth daughter of the main charaters, Tevye & Golde. She is so excited & we are so proud. She will have many hours of practice over the next five weeks (not to mention squeeking in a mission trip). Way to go baby girl - we are already looking forward to the performance!
Faith is BELIEVING the Word of God and acting on it no matter how I feel, believing that God will bring a good result.
Faith is not a belief that everything will turn out to please us; rather it is the confidence that no matter how things turn out, God will somehow use the events in our days for His glory and for our good.
Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.
Faith is being willing to trust God - turning your hopes and problems over to Him and trusting in His wisdom - and knowing that somehow everything will turn out for the best. No matter how difficult or dark things become, there is always a light.
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
Faith is a reasoning trust, a trust which reckons thoughtfully and confidently upon the trustworthiness of God.
Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.
