Keep the Faith

I woke up this morning to do my devotions, and spend time with Jesus and I read a passage from "Streams in the Desert." The Lord always knows what we need to hear. "O you of little faith, God has not failed you yet! When all looks dark and gloomy, You do so soon forget- Forget that He has led you, and gently cleared your way; On clouds has poured his sunshine, and turned your night to day. And if He's helped you to this point, He will not fail you now; How it must wound his heart, to see your anxious brow. Oh doubt not any longer, To him commit your way, Whom in the past you trusted, and is the same today."

Yesterday as I was celebrating our country's freedom, I was talking with my friend about losing hope, which in my mind is losing faith as well. I am not going to disclose what it was that we were losing hope in, but I can assure you it is something that we need not to worry about. It isn't always the most comforting to hear that God has a plan for you, and all of those things your mom tells you to make you feel better. You just want to see those results, NOW. But you have nothing if you do not have faith. My life has been pretty blessed along the way so far, why be anxious about tomorrow, when I know the Lord loves me, and he does have a plan for me?! Friends, those of you who know me well, do not let me lose faith! I pray that I will wake up each day with hope in my heart, and my mind at peace with the fact that I have no control over my life anyways because I decided a long time ago to give my life to our Savior. Best decision I ever made. If you are reading this by any chance, and you do not know Jesus, please please start asking questions. Look into this Jesus character, you will not be disappointed. I promise He is the only one who will not disappoint. He shows up to every coffee date on time, He is always there when you need someone to talk to, He comforts, He loves, He never rejects.

Love and Faithfulness
