Living by Faith...

What does it mean to live by faith? I am not talking about having faith, but living by faith. There is a huge difference. To live by faith means fully trusting God with your entire life. It means surrendering to him. Surrendering the good, bad, hard and not so hard. It’s letting go of absolute plans, control and expectations. Remember, the song “Jesus Take the Wheel”? It’s not just allowing God into your life, but letting God direct your path. Allowing Him to come, walk alongside you and lead you.

Sometimes it can feel like a GPS without the entire route…”Brooke, take a left here. Now take a right. Oops, you went too far, make a u-turn”. Unlike GPS, when we live by faith, we can’t see the entire route or even the next step. It’s in these steps God is teaching us, refining us and growing us. It’s in these blind steps that we grow closer to Him, trusting in Him and His promises. His promise to love us unconditionally, to never leave our side, to provide for all of our needs, to forgive us and to give us a good life. We have heard it time and time again, God has good plans for us, however, we won’t get to fully experience His good plans when we aren’t living in faith. It’s in our daily faithfulness that we are truly binded to our Lord. This friends is where the true journey starts. When we allow God into our heart and life we experience his fullness and love. No more angst, worry or unfulfillment.

He alone is all we need, everything falls into place when He is leading our life, when we are living by faith
