It All Starts with Faith

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe. Saint Augustine

It’s funny that I read about faith and prayer in my devotional this morning. It’s like God knew exactly what I needed to hear/read.

I like to believe that I’m a woman of faith. I’m usually a very positive person full of faith and hope, but I reached a point where my ability to have faith in certain things has become questionable.

It all starts with faith. How can one pray for something they don’t even believe in? You simply can’t.  For as long as I continue to lack faith in whatever it is that I’m hoping for, my prayer is worthless. Because it all starts with my faith. That’s the hard part. Believing in something that you can’t see–especially when you’ve been disappointed before.
If more than ever, this should be the time to hope more, and enlarge my faith. Because prayer changes things.

So prayer does make a difference—a life-changing and earth-rattling difference.- Lysa TerKeurst

Allow your faith to be so bold that fear and doubt have no room in your heart.
