Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. (unknown)
Max Lucado wrote a book called When God Whispers Your Name. The line that hit me the most was “Faith is trusting what the eye cannot see! ”
GRASPING THE IDEA
When you think about faith, it is often linked to the Supreme Being, Higher Power, God. That is the BIG FAITH! But, I think some people still have a difficult time grasping the concept of faith.
Lets think about the radio. On the radio dial, you will see numbers such as FM 91.1 or AM 1168. You don’t see the actual frequency that these numbers or channels represent, but you trust that when you dial into that station you will hear your favorite country or jazz music. That could be considered faith.
When you go to a restaurant and order a meal. Your waiter leaves your table and you expect he/she will return with your desired order matching your requests. That could be considered faith.
Your teenager is about to walk out the door and you say, “see you back here by 10pm.” That could be considered faith.
A possibility or desire you can’t see with your eyes, but you trust will happen, is considered faith.
GIVE IT A TRY
Next time you are troubled or in a tight spot, take that first step and trust that everything will happen as it is suppose to happen. Believe in your Higher Power, your Maker, your Creator, The Force, God. Have faith and trust.
