After a couple busy weeks on the blog, I am back with Faith Friday!! Super excited to share what I did this week in my Bible! Lots is going on in the world and in life, and it's always funny how God leads to me to certain things when I spend time with him in the Word.
I wasn't planning on talking about having Faith, but that is where I ended up.
I was reading about Sarah and Abraham and Sarah's desire to provide a son for Abraham. As I read through this story again, and thought about the patience and faith that she had, I thought about our own lives and how frustrating it can be to wait on the Lord for anything. And I often find myself frustrated and impatient and not even asking, Is this OK, Is this right for me... and just doing it.
So this was a good reminder.
I also really loved this verse, Hebrews 11:13 - So many of those living in these time were told Jesus would come back, yet it didn't happen for them in their life time. And they still believed and they still shared his story. That is an amazing testimony of faith.
I believe that is exactly what having faith it. Not seeing. Not needing proof. Just knowing and living my life in a way that shows that I believe God's Word is true. Hopefully, living that way and letting God's Word shine through me will help others to believe that it is true.
Sarah herself, never say the great Kingdom that followed her family but she believed that that was God was going to do. She didn't need proof or to see it with her own eyes, she just believed. That is what we need to do. Wait on the Lord and believe in his promises. Sometimes that prayers that you ask for will not be answered in your lifetimes. But believe that the work God is doing in your life is with great purpose.
I realize in my page, I didn't finish the sentence in writing. That is the part of the verse that I wanted to make highlighted. That they died having Faith in what was to come, but never received it in their lifetime.
As I shared in the video, most the products I'm using are from my own stash of things. I am using up my letter stickers and finding bits and pieces of older scrapbooking kits I had.
