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. – Martin Luther
I think this life is a daily exercise of faith. And that is in the daily task of leaning more on His grace than our understanding. It is trusting in God’s timing even when we want things now. And that is where I am now.
I have decided what I want, and now it is a matter of trusting God in His timing. It is working hard and making sure that the foundation is set for growth and a solid life, and trusting that is will all work out not just OK, but spectacularly.
First, I prepare. Then I have faith. – Joe Nameth
And isn’t that one of the hardest things in life? We can plan, work and write down our goals, but that does not always guarantee success. And it is human nature to want to control things, to want to control what will be. It is hard to let go after pouring your blood, sweat, tears and life onto something. But we must do our best then let go of the outcome, happy with our efforts one way or another.
I have been guilty of trying to force things into where I want them.
So I plan and work hard and have faith. My dreams are getting closer and closer, and that is exhilarating. I walk in the knowledge that wonderful is lining up. I am making the goal board, saying prayers, working hard and having faith.
It will happen right when it should, which hopefully won’t be too long. And those who make fun of our faith because they don’t understand? Don’t worry about them. Leave them along to stew in their lonely world and move on with yours.
Life is short. Plan. Prepare, Work hard. then let it go and have faith.
