I am reminded this day that the strongest of faiths can be built during the most trying of circumstances. I look back on my life and see that the times when my faith was bolstered the most was when life had dealt its harshest blows. Such is the way life works…such is the way faith is constructed.
I’m glad I write in my journal most every day. While some of the entries are inspirations I have found from my reading, many more are logs of the various events in my life. Looking back and reading, I can see where the conditions in my life were not in the brightest of lights. Yet, here I am today, still living life one day at a time with a stronger faith because of what I’ve experienced.
Hebrews 11:1 reminds us that “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” During our darkest of days, our faith reminds us that there is One who has all power. And we are to trust in Him in both the good days and bad.
Today, let us look at whatever our circumstances might be to grow our faith…and step out onto the waters despite the storms in our lives. Brighter days will be ahead.
