Faith Check In Progress
I’ve been in this position so many times in days gone by. Those moments when the body feels like quitting and the mind wonders why bother. Fortunately, I know I’m experiencing another one of those faith check moments. Am I going to believe in my gut or my God? Will I be led by my flesh or my faith?
I’ve got so many countless hours invested in this faith journey. God alone has brought me so far. Yet, I’ve still got so far to go. I believe I’m in the middle of another growing season. And the growing pains are so real and raw. Nothing beneath my skin feels comfortable.
Fortunately, I’ve been in this agonizing position before. God has proven every time He will give me the strength I need. How I feel doesn’t determine God’s plans. He knows where this all is headed. He has plans to use all this pain for my good and His glory. So, I choose once again to trust in the plans He has for me. God will help me pass through the next faith check moment.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
