Me and Faith
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old received divine approval. By faith we understand that the world was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made out of things which do not appear.
Thought for the Day: Have faith in God and He will carry you through.
Rehearsing the music for our church’s children’s choir musical has been so much fun. Observing the children, and their awesome memorization skills, has left me standing in awe as I hear them sing the precious words to the songs. Although the songs are upbeat and fun, they also carry a very big message. One of the songs, “Me and Faith” has touched me deeply recently. As the children perfect their words and tones I have been listening – and taking in the message.
“Me and Faith we make a great team, through any kind of weather. Me and Faith we make a great team, we gotta stick together. Whenever I’m filled with doubt, Faith comes in and knocks it out. Me and Faith, we make a great team.”
I have realized that the words to this particular song are the words I have lived by and continue living by every day. Some days, I falter and lose faith when I feel things falling apart around me, but overall I have FAITH. Overall, faith in Gods gets me through the hard times.
When I struggle, God is there – I have faith in my almighty Father and I know with that faith, God will carry me through. As I write these words, I look at the world with all its conflict, pain, confusion, and so many more things that make us want to lose faith. But then I remember that no matter what the world looks like around us, God is with us giving us the faith we need to get us through. Can we get through these hard times in our country if we try to do it on our own, no. But if we lean on God and know He is going to hold our hand and be there every instant of everyday, we will make it through. “Me and Faith….we make a great team!” (Plane Ol’ Mission Trip, Nick Robertson, Lillenas Publishing)
Prayer: Our faithful Father! Today, we come to you with many things on our minds. Help us throughout the day to put our faith in you, the One who loves us and will never let us go. Help us remember the simple words, “Me and Faith, we make a great team”, knowing that faith in You will bring a calmness and understanding to our day. We love you. Amen.
