How does it work?  As the sign says, Faith is not believing God can, but knowing He will. Some things, I believe, somethings I hope are true, this is one thing of which I’m certain!   This walk is something extraordinary, living a life that is firmly rooted in the knowledge that God not only can but will keep His word to us.  Over the years I’ve gone through many great times, and desperate lows.  One thing I’ve never doubted is that He is in control and always brings what is in my best interest.  Now it has taken years of trusting in my Heavenly Father to realize that what I want to happen is not always what He brings about.  Never, in retrospect, have I thought my idea or desire was better than His!!

 

If God had only one incredible ability, the ability to do anything He desired, but it was not measured by love, it would be dangerous, not an act of  God!  The pivotal truth is that God is love, I did not say God loves, I said God is LOVE.  God is the very embodiment of Love, He loves us so much that when we were dead to sin, with no hope, He sacrificed His only Son so that we might be forgiven.  Imagine a God that owns it all, controls it all, but gave His most precious possession for us!!

 

This journey has led me to the truth that having Faith in Him is the only thing that really matters!
