Where is your faith?

Good morning my sisters-

I have a client in town so I won't be able to write very much but this one question has been on my mind,"Where is my faith?"  I was asked yesterday what keeps me moving and I didn't proclaim the one thing I should have, Christ.  So, after a while I sent a Scripture to someone that is near to me at work and hoped that it would help.  I don't want to reveal the circumstances but I would ask that you would pray for strength and courage for this person and even faith.

The person I am referring to got some news yesterday that could be bad.  I could tell that there was fear and trepidation and all I could do was comfort and say, "Wait for the tests."  The tests will be done on Monday and the results will be back by the middle of next week.  This person has known what it's like to wait for tests and I know the fear is high.

I felt that same fear over a year ago when I found out I had high blood pressure.  It was scary and I was so full of fear I thought I was having panic attacks.  My mom's first heart attack was at 45 and my uncle had a massive stroke at the same age and here I was facing possibly similar circumstances.  I couldn't share my fear with anyone except Christ.  So I lay night after night trying to give my fear to Him because fear does not come from Him but from the devil.  The only fear we are to have is to fear Him, not our lives or our circumstances.

The first thing when I woke up this morning I sent this person a text with Scripture.  I wrote the following: "Be strong and courageous and know He is with you in all things.  He is our lamp, our Savior and our healer.  You are His and He loves you."

The Scripture that I put on that same text was: "Where is your faith?" He asked His disciples.  In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him."  Luke 8:26 NIV

Of course the winds and the earth obey Him, He is God.  So whenever my emotions start running away from me, I look up and ask myself, "Where is your faith?"  If I don't know, I get into Scripture and try to find it again.  I'm a little ashamed I didn't say something in words yesterday but maybe words were not what this person needed.  Maybe he just needed to hear from Christ.  I leave you today with that thought and to remember that everywhere we look there is someone that needs to hear a good word and that word is Jesus.

May God comfort and keep you today and please take time to pray for people and Nations.  We need to be the hands and feet of God.  One mind, One heart, One soul.  In Jesus Name, I pray.

Until tomorrow...
