What does it mean to live out our faith? What does it look like? Questions like these make me and others stumble often…as if there is one way and only one way to be a person of faith and if we could just figure that out…man things would always be great and easy…uh no. The life of faith is not presented as easy in the bible and I am pretty sure Jesus never said, come follow me and everything will be easy and you will always be happy. Faith is a journey. It is communicating with God, showing the fruits of the spirit in your daily walk, being thankful and having gratitude, being patient and trusting in God’s plan even when we don’t see it from His perspective. It’s hard and Jesus knows this first hand, He was here, He lived it, temptations and all…He suffered too. Then the next question becomes…Why? and at the core of faith is the one important thing that can answer the question of why…Love. May God’s peace be with you.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
