The Worth of My Faith
What is the worth of your faith if it is not worth giving your all to?
As a college student, I’m constantly having doubts of whether or not I’m in the right program, whether or not I’ll be able to pay for the next tuition bill, whether or not God's got me. Really, the thought does come into my mind.
It’s in our human nature to take things into our own hands and try to handle things ourselves. Because of this, it’s quite easy to forget that God never does anything unintentionally. Sometimes we get frustrated and angry at God because we can’t quite understand why we had to go through such a “low” in life. But in His own time, He’ll make it known that your tests turn into testimonies.
Sometimes God has to break you in order to bless you. During the moments that you feel like nothing is going right, that’s when your faith is being tested. During the moments where you just want to do everything according to your own will, that’s when your faith is being tested. That's why Paul says in tribulations, rejoice! I’ve been told over and over again that faith is not knowing what the future holds, but knowing Who holds the future. Faith is all about believeing. You don’t know how it will happen, but you know it will. And truly, God has so much to offer for us. But first, we ultimately have to be willing to take a leap into the unknown.
To let Him take control. FULL control.
“God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will surely bring you through it.” - Unknown
No one says having faith and acting on said faith is easy. But on this journey, I'm slowly learning every little thing that you’re able to surrender up to God builds your faith little by little. The heavier the building blocks, the more stable the foundation.
So when it comes to something big, it’s easier to remind yourself that God is there.
He’s just waiting for you to have faith in Him and His timing.
