Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Faith Through The Ebbs and Flows

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
~ Unknown Author ~

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
~ Hebrews 11:1 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world. I’m balanced and back to writing. (wink)

Taking a few extra days away from the circus. Wahoo, something to do. All is well in my world. Praise The Lord. (smile)

How deep is your faith when ebbs and flows come?

Too many times, we forget just how faithful God is. Life brings ebbs and flows; there is no avoiding it.

Faith is powerful when aligned with the will of God.It’s a beautiful thing to know yourself and just keep the faith walking through the ebbs and flows in life.

It’s a beautiful thing when you know who you are in Christ.

It’s a beautiful thing when your faith is in God.

It’s a beautiful thing when you know the power of speaking God’s Word over any situation.

Is there anything too hard for God?

It’s a beautiful thing to know rhetoric when you hear it.

It’s a beautiful thing to know love unconditionally and recognize loves never fails.

It’s a beautiful thing to be content until God brings the manifestation. Thank you Lord.

It’s a beautiful thing to let go of anything or anyone that disturbs the peace within us.

It’s a beautiful thing to be grateful.

Grateful for life.

Grateful for family and friends.

Grateful for answered prayers and God’s protection.

Blessings, my friends, as we just keep the faith through the ebbs and flows in life.

Feel free to share your thoughts. (smile)

Such a beautiful post, Ann. The Hebrews 11:1 has always been one of my favorite verses. It has taken me years to learn how to cope with ebbs and flows, since I have mental illnesses. I got turned on to mindfulness and Celebrate Recovery… both helped me tremendously. Peace and Joy, dear one!
