Some things have happened over the last few weeks that have me thinking more about my faith.

Not questioning my faith, just examining it.

The first thing was when my friend Kelly starting talking about why we believe the things we believe.  We grow up and are taught to believe certain things.  Now that we are mothers, it is our job to teach our children what we believe.  So, she has been on a mission to teach them why we believe what we believe based on scripture in the Bible and not just what we were taught to believe.  Thank you for inspiring me, Kelly.

Another happening had to do with me saying something on a public forum, and then regretting that I had said it (oh, the story of my life!).  It did produce a good conversation with someone that I am glad that we had.  I just want to say, that I am so glad for people who have been in my life throughout growing up and now in adulthood.  You people have definitely impacted my life.  For the better.

Then, on Sunday morning, we had someone speaking about Finish the Task in church.  The thing that he said that spoke the most to me was when he told us that during this process, his family had prayed and changed their will.  When he and his wife pass away, they are leaving ALL their earthly possessions to the church!  I was like, wow. He has taught his children not to trust in their parents for their future, but to trust in God.  I just was wowed at this family and the fact that they are giving back everything to God.  How many of us could truly do that?  Would you obey God if He told you to give everything back to Him?

We've also been studying Genesis in Sunday School and faith has been a main topic lately.  I've grown up having faith and believing, but faith has become so real to me lately-  What faith is and what it means.

And I heard this song in the van today and I LOVE it-

So do you have any good commentary on the subject of faith?


  1. You're welcome. I thank God I have you to talk to about all this, that we can learn more about Him together! ~Kelly

  2. Lately I have been reflecting on world and local news. I have been heavy with the thought of my children going through very hard times that I never in my life would have imagined for my children. I feel that with each passing day we are closer to hardships and I have been a spiritual mess about it.

    Yesterday, I felt the sermon at church was preached just for me. He spoke about building our church on the rock and how planted we needed to be in the Word and in our relationship with God. Only then when trials and tribulation come we will stand firm and unwavering. He made it a point to emphasize When. It is not a question of if but the knowledge of when. If we prepare ourselves now we will be well immersed in the things of our savior Jesus Christ.

    Knowing the Word and building a relationship with God through prayer will reveal the truth to us. I will begin teaching my boys this and this will be their inheritance.

    Speaking of is good that that couple felt convicted to leave their possessions to the church but I feel:
    A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:22

    The inheritance does not necessarily mean monetary value but we should leave something behind for our children and future.

  3. Thank you so much ladies! I truly value your words and wisdom!


I always love hearing from you!
