2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV
“For we walk by faith, not by sight”
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Faith is one of those things that I struggle with sometimes. Lately, I’ve been trying my best to stay positive and to have faith that things will be okay. Sometimes, I have a hard time trying to see past a situation or situations. I tend to go by what I see instead of what I can’t see..That’s where faith needs to step in. I know that God works in the midst of our situations..He works behind the scenes and he has a plan for everything. I know that I have to trust him despite what I see. I need to have the “old people faith”. The older people I have seen, had faith despite how bad their situations were. They always believed that God would work their situation out.
Quick Story: I remember back in 2008 when I was still attending AUM and making plans to transfer to AU,one of my aunts was very sick. She had faith that God would heal her of her sickness. Unfortunately, my aunt passed away in May 2008. She passed away during the week I was taking my finals. After my finals, I went home back home and attended my aunt’s funeral. A few weeks later I moved into my new apt in Auburn and went to school at AU. Anyway my point is faith is important. We have to have faith no matter what happens in our lives. Without faith and God we would crumble. God bless! ~Venus~
