Faith...

I was working on my Institute lesson for tonight and came across a short simple and yet oh, so true scripture I thought I would share...

2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by Faith, not by sight

Faith is hard for me. I prefer sight and my own effort. Turning things over to anyone, including God, and expecting them to be as interested and concerned about the outcome as I am is extremely hard for me. I'm thickheaded sometimes.

good...and the one that we read in SS on Sunday was from Romans:14:23 "But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not from faith is sin". Ouch

Great scripture! HOW did class go??

So true. It reminds me of my favorite quote on Faith:

Put your hand into the hand of God, which will be to you better than a light and safer than a known way. m

My problem right now with faith is that I don't know what God has in mind. I know what I want, so that's what I want to have happen. I'm scared (total lack of faith) to place it in God's hands because I'm afraid (again, no faith) of what He'll say.

Which means I just end up with no answer because I haven't turned it over to God. Viscious cycle. Or maybe it's a stale mate.

Great thought. My patriarchal blessing tells me that I have the gift of faith...what it didn't explain to me, tho, is that one often goes through the refiners fire to gain that gift of faith. ;0). Thanks for sharing.

What a great scripture. I really like that.. You & Pam are just so strong & have so much knowledge to share. Thank you so much for helping me learn more.

Absolutely! And, we have to learn to be OK with that whole "but if not" factor!!


I wish I could take Institute from you... I sort of need that in my life.
