I had a topic in mind to write about this morning but God had other plans. Yea, I know I’ve written a lot of devotionals on faith but somebody is having a hard time this morning dealing with something. Maybe you’re trying to decide whether or not you should go for that job, try that new medicine or procedure, start a new business, write that book or even about that relationship but whatever it is, try it. Will you fail? Maybe you will and maybe you won’t. Will it be what you thought it would be? Maybe yes or maybe no. Will it be hard? Definitely. However, how will you know if you don’t try? And why should you try? Well because Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as “the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”
Let me share this once again for those of you whose thoughts are still wavering over this faith thing. I didn’t set out to start a devotional blog yet it was already destined, meant and ordained for me so instead of continually running from being chosen by God, I took the step. Now, I didn’t just take any step but I took the step of faith and if you wondering why refer back to the definition of faith. Baby, it’s isn’t easy writing a devotional blog because although these are my thoughts, they have to be grounded in God’s word and in order for my words to be grounded, I have to be and because I am, the enemy sometime attacks me harder. Oh, but get this … My foundation of faith is solid so although I may sway, sometimes, from the blows I don’t shift. Although I may stumble, my faith doesn’t spill. Although the punches may sometimes hurt, they don’t hinder me. Yes, sometimes they even cause tears but they’re temporary. Did I ever think I’d have people who are encouraged by me, no but God did and sometimes when I have a momentary lapse, He sends someone to remind me? This time it came by way of an email from this young man. (Subject of the email was Love your blog). So, I open the email and I begin to read and my spirit began to be filled and so did my eyes with tears because here I am, me a simple nobody by folk’s standard yet a chosen somebody by God who inspires someone I don’t even know. (God amazes me!) I won’t make this long, however, he works for a company called Good Work(s) and they make inspirational bracelets and he wanted to share some with me so that I can share them with you as a way to show appreciation and admiration for what I do (I’m speechless). Well, I received the package on last night and when I tell you they are absolutely gorgeous, it doesn’t even do them justice. These bracelets are amazing. I’ll add a few pictures for you to see them but please go to their website
And see for yourself. And get this … Use the code FAITH for a 30% discount. (WOW! I didn’t even remember this was the code until I went back to my email just now.) God is faithful and will do everything He has promised and all you have to do is have faith enough to believe that He won’t leave you nor forsake you! Faith! That good work(s) faith!
