Faith-Full Part 1
We talk about being "faithful", we desire to be "faithful", we want to end our lives and hear "well done my good and faithful servant', but do we really understand this word that simply lilts off our tongue in the most nonchalant way? I too would (and still do) mindlessly utter the word in reference to one or two aspects of my life, but fail to realize the gravity of of the word. I know it seems basic when I say that it means to live a life that is actually full of faith. Okay, enough of this dissection of a word because honestly that's about all I can handle as well.
"Ultimately the only thing we can count on as a constant is Christ..."
My point is, I found myself thinking about being faithful, aka: (having faith) when I was dealing with some of the hardest times in my life, but I didn't think much about it outside of those situations. Here's the beauty of struggles: they force us to cling to something. We were created to find security in "something". It's part of what it means to be human. Ultimately the only thing we can count on as a constant is Christ because people, this world, and everything in it will never fully satisfy that longing desire for something more.
"Employing faith gives true freedom and peace because failure is inevitable, but God's faithfulness to His own is unpreventable"
Being faithful isn't just about having faith when you're in a crisis, it's about trusting God with your family life, your job, your friendships, and your dreams. It's completely giving it up and refusing to worry about those things because they are out of your control, and honestly, they always were. Employing faith gives true freedom and peace because failure is inevitable, but God's faithfulness to His own is unpreventable.
