Hold onto faith and don’t let go!
Many times its easy to just throw our hands in the air and scream “I quit”. But, what does that really solve in the long run of things?
Probably nothing, as that has proven to be the case in my life. Cause it would come around again and be the more difficult to endure.
I still have those notions come with things arise. They will say: “Its ok to give up” or “You was never made to endure such hardships” and “who do you think you are thinking faith will save you?”
Have you ever had those or any other questions fly up in your soul (mind,will and emotions)?
Choosing to live a life of faith did not exzempt me from enduring trials pain or suffering. The word plainly says though you may endure, but in the faith we know in where our hope lays as we go through tuff times. (Paraphrase) James 1 even says that we should count it all joy when you face trials of many kinds.
Yes the word of God says that!
Consider it pure joy that in the trials that your faith is being tested to produce something in your life! (James 1:3-4)
It is in the trial that I must learn that it is to produce something new or grow something that needs to come up in my life.
It is my confession of faith ever ready on my lips as I study the word more and more. But to even be on my lips it must be imprinted on my heart.
For from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and if my heart continues to reside in wrong thinking toward hardships then my lips will perpetuate a cycle of negativity that produces that fruit over faith spoken belief manifestations.
I have to take off the old negative, wrong thinking Cynthia and put on Jesus’ mind that He will make a way where there is no way, that with me(God) all things are possible to them who believe, that I (God) work all things together for the good, and My ways (Gods) are higher than Cynthia’s.
It is in this that the old can pass away the more and become new inwardly in my inner most being. The inner man of my heart is the one Jesus is most concerned about.
Let us adorn our inner life with the beauty that is in Christ!
Let us hold fast to our faith!
By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
