This week Ashley and Jill's theme is FAITH. Faith, what is it? Don't we all have faith in something? Merriam-Webster defines faith as a "firm belief in something for which there is no proof; complete trust; something that is believed especially with strong convictions." The Bible defines faith as "confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1).
I have a "firm belief" that Jesus Christ came to this earth. I have a "firm belief" that He lived a perfect life. I have a "firm belief" that He died on a cross for my sins. I have a "firm belief" that He was resurrected on the third day, so that I might have LIFE and have it to the full.
I have "firm beliefs." I have "strong convictions." I have "confidence" in Jesus Christ, the "hope of all nations. I have "assurance" that my LORD made all things, controls all things, and works all things together for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). I have FAITH in the LORD Jesus Christ!
There are days and seasons when I struggle to put my "complete trust," my complete "confidence" in the Lord, but during those days, during those seasons I pray, "I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief" (Mark 9:24).
Several months ago, I started documenting my Journey of Faith, as I felt the Lord prompting me to share more of my story. I believe documenting your journey with the Lord serves as beautiful reminder of the work He has done in your life. I have written about my season of doubt, answered prayer, unanswered prayer, my sin, correcting brothers/sisters in Christ, motherhood, the blessing of music, books, Scripture, and many others.
