A "Winter" Concert
We attended Keaton's "winter" concert last night at school. It irritates me that we can't call it a Christmas concert, but that's a whole 'nother post.
It was a great show! Keaton loves to sing and was very expressive on the stage which made for great entertainment. When I dropped him off in his classroom there was a little strawberry blonde haired girl that kept looking at him and smiling. I told Keaton how handsome he was and told him to sing loud and smile. She looked at me with a big goofy grin and said, "Keaton looks nice". As I exited the room she was talking near the door with some other girls and they were giggling about Keaton being cute...oy!
Keaton really wanted a red handkerchief for his pocket, but I didn't have one. I went downstairs and dug through my tote of extra fabric and found a small piece of red satin that I cut into a square and folded. When I tucked it in his pocket he looked at me with a big smile and said, "you're a good mom". Ahh, melt my heart. Keaton is my sweet sensitive boy and I am blessed to call him son.
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.
