“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.” -2 Peter 1 5:7
Like many Biblical character’s in the Bible, your faith in the Lord is the key to overcoming trials and tribulations. After falling so many times, I knew getting back up was my only option but I didn’t know that faith was there to help me up. I have recognized it is in me each and every time I pick myself back up again and never giving up. But I also learned faith is more than just seeing the unseen. I had to undo everything that I thought defined me. What was taught. How I feel, how I think and what I see. Faith is all that I have and can lean on.
I had to learn to be able to trust my life, my children’s lives with God completely and totally; because nothing else has brought me peace. I have learned to no longer allow anxiety to have a chance to resurface when challenges come at me in full force back to back.
Faith is all I have.
Learning to accept my assignments instead of complaining, with all my heart. Allowing God to soften it in order to deal with others in Godliness because I know better and much is required.
All I can do is rely on faith because it’s all I have and it’s surely more than enough.
