Hello friends. (smile) Faith is a spiritual fruit of the spirit. It’s a beautiful thing to have and live life by faith. Even faith, the size of a mustard seed is powerful.

Faith, aligned with the will of God, speak things into existence. I’m a witness.

Faith that trust and believe, in the faithfulness, of God, is a lifeline in challenging times. Faith, to renew the mind, brings freedom from torment.
Faith to forgive, frees the mind to release and let go.
Faith to conquer fear, changes everything.
Faith is walking through the fiery furnace and coming out stronger.
Faith is positive energy that draws others to us.
Faith is knowing, current situations are temporary.

Faith is believing for that job, that mate, that child, that house, that healing, that book.

Faith is thanking God, while waiting on the manifestation.

Faith is enjoying precious times with family and friends.

Blessings, my friends, as we keep the faith and enjoy the G to Z challenge! (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts on faith.

Courage

2 Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

It takes courage to step out of your comfort level and try something different. It takes courage to speak your hopes and dreams out loud. It takes courage to believe in the faithfulness of God and the desires He puts within us. It takes courage to believe in ourself.

It takes courage to stop running from life. It takes courage to make decisions and stand behind them. It takes courage to stand alone and not follow the crowd. It takes courage to recognize our weaknesses and do something about it. It takes courage to let go of controlling everything.

Courage grows as we mature spiritually. Courage grows as we become comfortable in who we are in Christ. Courage grows when we take responsibility for our choices. Courage grows when we stop making excuses. Courage grows when we become honest with ourself. Courage grows when we realize the past no longer holds us captive.

As we get older, it’s takes strength and courage to live life without others approval. As we get older, it takes courage to continue regardless of critics. (smile)

Be encouraged to do it, by faith, until your courage is stronger that doubt, fear, or fill in the blank _____________.

Be blessed and enjoy your Sunday! (smile)
