Living by faith!

Abraham was called by God out of his native land to go to a land that the Lord would show him. He didnt know where this land was or what he would find there but he packed up and left at God's command. What great faith! A true inspiration to us all.

In life we often times have to live by faith. Some people do not know when their next meal will be, or where they will sleep for the night but they keep moving. They truly inspire me as i seem to have so much and yet i worry so much. It makes me realize how frivolous i can be!


There is also the temptation to ask where is God when faced with trials. Has he abandoned me? Does he still care for me? We forget all the good things we have been enjoying previously. Life is not a plateau! Its a roller coaster filled with highs and lows! Enjoy and smile  when you are in a happy phase and cry when you get to a sad phase but dont let it dampen your spirits. Even when you are suffering, God still cares for you and your suffering has purpose.


They say everything happens for a reason but i know its so hard to beliveve especially when you seem to be in a slump. There is a man in Phillipines who lost his only daugher during Pope Francis' visit there. He later met the pope and do you know what he said? He said " his only daughter may have died but if she had not, he probably would not have met the Pope and meeting the pope is like meeting Jesus himself.'" The pope was speechless at this but marvelled at this man's faith. I am in awe of him but we all know faith comes from God. It is his gift. My prayer for you today is that God grants you the courage and faith to endure all things with peace of heart and mind. Amen.
