Thankful Me: Day6
I am thankful for faith.
My faith is in a Creator who knows how many hairs fell out of my head today. It is in Someone who took an expanse of nothing and hand-carved continents. My faith is rooted in a soil of promise; a promise that I would never be alone or forsaken.
I have experienced moments of cave-like sorrow. I have inhaled the thin air at the tops of victorious mountains. I have become restless with straight, never-ending two lane roads that seem to go nowhere. All of these experiences had one companion in common.
To have faith is a necessity. You will carry it through the delivery of your first child. You will cling to it at the death of a loved one. You will find that it deepens as your journey lengthens.
Without faith, my heart would beat slower. My soul would atrophy. Faith in the One who uses stars as His flashlights breeds hope and certainty. A hope that allows you the desire to get up tomorrow, and certainty that He is there.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see..... Hebrews 11:1
