Faith and The Road of Life


Definition of Faith: It is the confident belief in the truth of or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing. It is also used for a belief, without proof. Informal usage of the word "faith" can be quite broad, and may be used standardly in place of "trust", "belief", or "hope". For example, the word "faith" can refer to a religion itself or to religion in general. As with "trust", faith involves a concept of future events or outcomes. Faith is often used in a religious context. It is the belief and the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, based on his or her authority and truthfulness.
Is it possible to have to much Faith? Nah…it can’t be right? The posture of faith provides a sense of inner peace which gives us the ability to embrace and celebrate the existing opportunities for joy in our life. Will Faith make me pregnant, not so much…but having Faith gets me through the days-good and bad. Having Faith helps me stay positive and not think negative. So surely you can’t have to much Faith! I’ve always been a strong believer of Faith, but hear lately I depend on it…is that a bad thing? I personally don’t think so. I trust in our Lord in Savior. I feel he has a plan so great for Zach and I; I have FAITH! God runs the world from a vantage point of knowing the broader picture and , hence, what ultimately is in our best interest. I just keep telling myself that we need to pray for strength, for the recognition that no matter what, our Heavenly Father is holding our hands and will see us through our life’s journey. In the final analysis, we don't write the script for our lives-he does. There will be the inevitable bumps and potholes along the road we travel.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
Philippians 4:13—I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.

I think it is a wonderful thing to depend on your faith!! You have a great outlook and should continue to take comfort in trusting Christ! He is in control!

I am so glad you found our blog and now I can follow your journey as well! Of course I wish we could follow each other's pregnancy journey but God is faithful and full of love and we can trust in that!!!

Nice to meet you! :)

What a wonderful post Tiffany! Having faith is so important in this life! The Lord wants us to put our full faith and trust in Him.

The journey towards pregnancy and motherhood is all about faith. My mom once told me that motherhood is the ultimate test of faith. And it starts even before we become moms. From the journey there, during the pregnancy and beyond. There are so many uncertainties, but one thing remains...God is faithful!

Well, I also wanted to say that you are more than welcome to do Thankful Thursdays. Maybe I should do a Mr. Linky type thing for that? Who knows. There is always something for us to be thankful for, that's for sure! Have a great rest of your day!

Love,
