faith in all areas of life

When God calls me to have faith He is calling me to have faith (full stop)

He is not calling me to have faith just during times of raising support or times of waiting for a husband. He is not calling me to have faith just when I plunge into new adventures or travels. He is not calling me to just have faith when my heart breaks over those who do not have hope in Christ. He is not calling me to just have faith when I enter into difficult situations.

He is calling me to have faith in Him through all situations and relationships in life.

Have you ever thought about how your life would be different if you truly entered into all situations and relationships full of faith?

I feel like I am daily processing what this means.

God has given me a deep desire to be married and have children. Yet I will trust that God will provide this life adventure in His timing.

I know God has called me to move to Rome, Italy and this means I need to find the ministry partners that He is providing. I will trust that He knows where the money will come from.

I have friends in many different difficulties and I wish I could ease their pain. I trust that God is the best at easing pain and fixing difficult situations. I also trust that God is the only one who can give me the wisdom to care and listen and offer words of hope and peace.

It helps me to look for the evidences of the things not yet seen. Hebrews 11:1-- do you have that one memorized? :-)

God has allowed me to see evidences of His faithfulness all over the place!
  • Unexpected people joining my ministry team.
  • Confirmations that I am marriage material.
  • Friends growing in their faith.
  • and more...
Do you see the evidences that God leaves you of His faithfulness?

Book I think every Christian should read

If you have not read this you need to.

Bo's Cafe
