Living By Faith

Don't you just wish that sometimes you could go back to being a child, not just the care-free part of life, but also the faith that you had in the people who were around you. What a profound phrase: childlike faith.

To live by faith is a stretch. You sometimes think you got it down, but then you realize you don't and again you need the Lord's help to trust Him and walk by faith. Faith by definition is belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence. We, being logical creatures and desiring to see things first hand, think faith sometimes is nearly impossible. However, it's our desire to live by faith. In our times of living that way, really living it, the Lord has shown his faithfulness like never before. There were times when we were on the Anastasis that we weren't sure how we were going to pay our crew fees, or just before we left for the Anastasis, we weren't sure how we would raise support, pack our things and our house, buy airline tickets and get to the ship in three weeks. When we decided to try and buy a house, we by normal standards couldn't expect much, because we had no work history for even a year, but again the Lord was faithful and gave us an amazing house. And again He was faithful to our desires for a child, he gave us Matthan. But yet, here we are again knowing that it's right for me to raise our child, but struggling with finances and car problems, why is it so difficult to put our trust in Him right away? He is Jehovah-Jirah, my provider. He will take care of us, but it is not logical and I cannot see it. I have to choose to live by faith and my spirit cries out to have faith like a child. So, we wait and we pray to see our Lord and the way that He will continue to orchestrate our life.
