Flip Your Faith!
Faith Doesn't Make things Easy, it Makes things Possible
Faith doesn't have to see to know
Now, before we start on this talk about faith, let me share this with you. I heard about faith all my life. And I even called myself a Christian. But, boy oh boy, I had no idea how freeing true faith can be!
It’s such an overused word so let’s get clear on what faith is.
Like a Snickerdoodle cookie, the best way to define it is to describe it. Faith is a knowingness without having to know.
A life of faith is a life of letting go. Letting go of what, you ask? Of letting go of the thing we humanoids seem to hang onto the tightest; CONTROL.
You cannot and will not see the entire staircase before you take that step. You cannot know what his reaction will be, or what the market is going to do. You do not know how they will receive you. You cannot know exactly where your step will take you. That’s why they call it faith. Living life full-out takes faith. And faith takes guts.
You spend more energy than you may be aware of trying to maintain control in your life and it’s quite wearing.
I think controlling our world is one of our favorite national past times. We try controlling our expenses, our diet, our children, our investments. We try controlling our time, our spouse, our image. Why?
We HATE not feeling in control! Why? Because we want guarantees that we won’t be caught off guard, rejected, bamboozled or unloved.
Here’s the stressful part of all that; we never can successfully control people and things! Ah, but that’s the beauty of faith. With faith, you and I no longer have to concern ourselves with the outcome or with things “working out.” We do our part and then…LET GO!
Faith is such a critical part of life, and this page is just so darn small! So send me a message and let’s visit more about faith. I would love to share more of what I’ve experienced. Without question, the more I let go of having to “feel” in control, the more “out of the way” I become. Faith is an indescribable adventure that promises a happy ending!
To stir, incite and inspire those whose paths I cross, inviting folks to live life with the vitality and full-color gusto our Maker had in mind for each of us the moment we came outta that oven.
I see marriages being healed, dreams and family values being reborn and restored. I see an awakening as folks begin to remember who they are and WHOSE they are. Yes! I claim that vision.
