Having the Faith ~ Faith Lift Friday

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Dear Friends,

I have decided to post a Faith Lifts Friday and dedicate it to my Dear Friend Mabel
as most of you know she is going through some treatments at City of Hope. Mabel and I have had plenty of talks over the years about being a volunteer of God's army and not a sick person of the other guy...LOL

We had packaged up cheer up nickels for her to pass out for the fountain there, and just recently my friend Mary Kate and I made scripture kits that you can read about here.

Realizing the ultimate gift we have in our lives is the love of the Lord and his compass and guide for our lives the Bible. Any situation , need , or answer we need is there as well as his grace, love, mercy. We must have the faith though to believe .

For truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you.
Matthew 17:20

As believers we are to look up to the Lord and not the problem. Keeping our focus on him keeps out the confusion and our paths become clearer. Sometimes we never know why we are going through a situation until later in life, or why God might not give us the things we think we need or want. If we pray for his love, protection, mercy and grace we must trust that he has already given it and trust that he only has our best interests at heart. God always uses all to his greater good and from whatever we learn or do we must give him the glory.

In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be put into confusion.
Psalm 71:1 KJV

There might even be times you will see others crossing bridges in their lives, health, marriages , or spiritual life that you have crossed and God will use you as an instrument to help others.

Be of strong faith and help others as God will put others in your path to help you.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23:6 KJV

May the Lord bless you today and always fellow Queens as you go about your day.
