Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Of all the things I’m thankful for, none would be counted as treasures without the gift of faith from the Almighty God. When counting my blessings, my family is first and foremost, but without faith, I’d be overcome with the magnitude of difficulties that life brings, especially with our large brood. However trying life becomes, resting upon the solid foundation of faith in Jesus Christ lifts the heavy burden of living in this world. My heart overflows with gratefulness for His outpouring of family love and the faith that we share. It is God’s precious gift that allows me to weather through pressures that might otherwise have the power to overcome me. Not so with God’s precious gift. For my faith is not in this world but in the hope of eternity. Hallelujah! This hope I have for my family, my friends, acquaintances, and strangers, and when all seems lost, I can share Jesus’ gift of eternal love and life. I am indebted to Him for the purpose he’s given me through faith. That being to live my life for His glory, which I can’t do on my own. FAITH… It’s immovable, unshakeable, staunch, and sure. Thank you, Jesus!
And without faith, it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Romans 12:3
