Enough Faith To Follow

Today, our church women gathered for a  several hour workshop with the theme,

“God’s Raining Love”

and theme verse:

“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers righteousness on you.” Hosea 10:12

We studied about God’s love and our faith and obedience. The speaker gave several definitions of faith including:

  1. Confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing.
  2. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.
  3. Loyalty to a person or thing; allegiance

The second definition is what stands out to me. I believe that there is a lot of evidence (in several fields of study) that supports the Bible, Christianity, and the fact that there is a God (to read recent debates on this subject; see the comment sections of my blogs here and here). But the reality is; we are not supposed to know all of the answers to all of life’s questions. If we did; that would mean that God would not big enough to be our God. To be completely honest; the fact that I don’t know everything is comforting. Instead, I can rest in the arms of Christ and trust that He has the answers and will guide me along the right path.

I will talk more about the workshop on another day; but for now I am going to share a poem that I wrote today during our quiet prayer time with God.

*****

I have sometimes questioned what I believe.

I have been a doubting Thomas who wished to see.

I have searched for answers, facts, and clues;

When searching for the truth.

The evidence for You is sometimes hard to find.

But other times I would have to be blind;

If I did not acknowledge what

Confirms by faith the Truth.

Here am I Lord; ready to do your will.

I may not understand.

I may not comprehend.

But your will for me is made complete;

Through the love You have given me.
