Affirmation

When you start learning about faith, it tends to look light and fluffy, like everyone else. It is an image that sits up high and tries to resemble those around you. For years I allowed other people to decide what faith looked like to me.

Affirmation

This month’s affirmation is faith. It is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something. We all have faith in something.

My faith is in Jesus as the Son of God. Every day it looks different.

I admit in the beginning it was small and could barely be seen. It blended in with the backdrop. It wasn’t trying to stand out or stand up. It just was.

What does your faith look like?

It Sprung!

Your shoes crunching in the snow.

The echo of tires skidding down the street.

Peaceful.

Quiet.

It is over.

The sound of music from three buildings down.

The bumping and grinding interlaced with sweet rhythm and blues

The smell of grilled meat colliding with the perfume of a skunk.

The cool breeze coming through open windows.

It sprung.

Affirmation

In Destiny’s Dilemma, Zo is very good at dispensing grace to those she thinks deserve it. It is when she comes up against someone she thinks does not deserve her grace that the valve turns off. We do that sometimes. God’s grace doesn’t come with strings.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8)
