"So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy"
~Colossians 1:10-11

Thoughts for Today

On Faith~

"Faith enables us to be content even when life doesn't make sense."

" Faith is rooted in God's character."

"Faith is based on God's Word, not on our feelings."

"God is in control of all the uncontrollables in our lives: What we can't see, what doesn't make sense to us and what we don't understand."

"Faith looks to God, but feelings look to what is going on around us. Faith hopes in who God is and in what He has promised."

(from "Calm My Anxious Heart", by Linda Dillow, Chapter 9)

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
