Faith is a substance!

But what is faith?



  1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something
  2. strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

So, how is that a substance right?


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

When I feel hopeless that reminds me that I am in my natural 5 senses looking for evidence of God being at work in my life.

But, thats not living by faith searching and looking for proof. Pastor Juanita Gibbs tells us at Reformation Developmental Center the scripture that the just shall live by faith.

Faith is a key component in this life. Gods word also proclaims that we are to live by faith and not by sight as pastor also reminds me of often to help me renew. Yet I have gone around by sight looking to have faith.

How backwards is that right!

It was the mind set of show me then I will believe. But, God says have faith then you shall see. Seek me first and my kingdom and my righteousness then watch for all the things I will add unto you.

Faith and hope work together as a powerful force. But they need to be firmly rooted in the spirit of God. By that I mean that the contents of my soul (mind, will, and emotions) will at times try to move me from standing in faith. The spirit leading my life needs to be supreme.

When my faith and hope are bound to my emotions and how I am thinking at the time that is an emotional rollercoaster of ups and downs.

God wants me to be firm and untossed as the changing tides, anchored deeply in his love and trust that all that comes my way in life will work together for the good.

Faith anchored in the finished work of the cross as Pastor tells us will help us to endure and exercise our measure of faith and remain being lead and guided by the spirit over my soul.

Greetings Readers! I began blogging in Aug 2017 about my personal experiences, thing I have going on in my life that I am working toward overcoming. I write my blogs to help encourage others that may be going through some of the things like I have dealt with in life to show them there is help and hope no matter what we are going through in life. My writings have helped me to begin to write my very first book and it is coming along greatly and I sure hope to have it published perhaps next year would be great. So, please stay tuned for that! I want my life to help inspire others to keep going and to not quit when life gets hard. We all may face different things but we can learn from each other if we see how we overcome in an area that another may be struggling in. I write to encourage and uplift to bring a glimmer of hope when there isn't much offered out there in the world today. I have been an avid reader for years and this year has been a year of me putting my writing out there for the world to begin to see as I have of others. ~Love Life ~ Live Life~ ;)
