Thrilling Thursday-sometimes the thrill comes from having the faith to hold on until the change comes.
I like being a Christian woman. There is real comfort in believing there is a God above that loves you, cares for you, protects you and is watching over you. I like knowing that faith, can move mountains and change the world. Being a Christian does not make me think that life will always be sugar lillies and smiles. The truth of the matter is that sometimes life is hard. Sometimes we are treated unfairly and sometimes things don't go our way. During those times, Christian faith can keep you in the fight.
Faith, tiny little mustard seed faith can make the world better. Sometimes we are facing situations that are hard, perilous and frightening. During those times we may have no idea how we are going to get from our tragedy to solid footing on good ground. It is at those times that we need faith to carry us though. Faith is that thing that makes us believe in a certain outcome when we have no reason for that belief. Faith makes us think things will get better even when there is no evidence to support that belief.
So today it is thrilling to know that faith will carry us forward to the good outcome we know is there on the other side of this temporary problem.
