Slow down, breathe deep, and connect to your power source.
“In this room you see a big bulb and a big switch. But, if there is no connection with the main power house, then there can be no light. Faith and prayer is the connection with God, and when that is there, there is service.”
Take a moment, connecting with God, and know this: Faith carries you through. Faith calls you to action. Faith is enough.
We know that if the tent that we live in on earth is torn down, we have a building from God. It’s a house that isn’t handmade, which is eternal and located in heaven.
2 Corinthians 5:1
You know those moments when everything feels shaken? Maybe a close friend or family member passes away, maybe you lose a job, or maybe a natural disaster strikes. These are life-altering, priority-changing moments. These are faith-changing moments — for better or for worse.
In these moments, it’s nearly impossible to remember that there’s something greater out there, and even when people do remind us, it can feel hollow. But it’s true.
You are a child of God, and that status remains unchanged. The empathy, courage, love, and perseverance we learn in those difficult, life-changing moments all matter because they’re reminders to our faith that we are children of God. We have a promise for protection from God that isn’t handmade and that’s not going anywhere.
Lord, I am your child. Thank you for loving me even when life’s circumstances make me feel unlovable. Show me how to give that same love to others. Amen.
Faith is both amazing and frustrating. Faith is what invites questions and what keeps us going. What step can you take today?
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
