About Going by Faith… It’s a Daily Choice
When we go by faith, we release the controls and let God lead the way. It’s not always easy.
We all want to feel free and live in peace, but most of the time we imprison ourselves. We do this by putting our faith in the ways of the world–material goods, status, lifestyle, “important” people–and feel let down when they don’t deliver. But they weren’t designed to deliver. They don’t make us, and they don’t go with us.
God delivers. God makes us. God does go with us.
When we turn to God–which we can do today, right now–He promises to:
* Transform our lives
* Forgive our sins–yes, all of them
* Open doors where none existed
* Perform miracles we cannot imagine
* LOVE us unconditionally
* Show us how to love others unconditionally
* Set us free from bondage
* Answer our prayers in line with His will
* The list goes on and on… this doesn’t even begin to cover it
About Jen Johns
This blog is about God and His message for all of us.
As a person writing here, well, to say I was mislead before turning over the reigns is a complete understatement. Here is my testimony.
One night during a particularly trying time, I couldn’t take it anymore and broke. I prayed for God’s forgiveness and my life began to change, but it was only the beginning of a long journey. I still wasn’t ready to fully surrender my life, and so the struggle continued.
I explored mindfulness, meditation… and occasional prayer. Something inside was stirring though, and better choices began to lead to better outcomes. And then I met a special person at a cafe who invited me to a Christian church. That special person is now my husband, and that special church was the place I surrendered my life fully to God.
He was waiting for me. And He’s waiting for you.
I still make mistakes and stumble. I still blow it. But the important thing is, I don’t want to.
When we give over our lives, we’re under the guidance and protection of God. These temptations and setbacks aren’t the end–they’re places to grow spiritually. Let’s practice the daily choice of going by faith and trusting in God with our whole lives. It takes courage. Are you up for it?
May God bless you.
