My faith post
This post is because of things I have been struggling with. Physically, and spiritually. I have the Holy Ghost. (God's Spirit living inside of me) It's the best thing that could EVER happen to you!! Things come our way, physical problems, earthly problems, financial problems, all sorts of things. That is life, and living for God does not take those problems away. But those who serve God do have benefits. He promised to never leave or forsake us! He promised to make us stronger through trials! He promised ME He has something in store for me. He wants to use me! I have been struggling with things lately, not feeling well. I have struggled with fear, anxiety, and doubt. But God has been showing me things in His word about FAITH. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. God responds to faith. God honors faith. Sometimes things look so hopeless but if we will only believe, He will see us through. He might not always take away our tribulations, but He will be with us through them, and we will come out greater if we hold to His hand and praise Him through it. There is power in praise, and though I have felt very discouraged and afraid, I can encourage myself in God. Those feelings do not come from God. He still wants to use me, still has something for me, still wants to make me great. He has had His hand on me since I was a child and I'm trusting Him with my life. So easy to say, so hard to live. But I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! There is something great in store yet for me. I can only see the peaks, not the road. But I will get there. I will be great for God someday, and I'm on a journey.
