He Has Moved Our Mountains: On Faith

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Tomorrow is match day.  The long awaited day for John and I.  The day that we have been waiting for for the past four years, it seems. The day where the haze of the next few years of our life will finally become clear.

The theme of this past year for us can be summed up into one word: Faith.  We've learned what real faith is.  We've learned to develop a certainty in something far beyond us. Faith is not simply a "wishful hope" it is an assurance.  This is the first time in my life that I can say I've understood that in a deep and personal way.  I wrote a few thoughts in my journal today...and I wanted to share them:

"...2009 has been the year of our greatest trust- but also the year of greatest blessing.  

As we gave to God financially, he poured on His blessing.
As we gave more of ourselves, he allowed us to experience His power.
As we gave Him our trust, he grew our faith and performed miracles.
As we gave Him our occupations, He opened doors and provided in ways we could have never imagined.  We were without need.

Tomorrow morning we get a glimpse of the next step God has in store for our lives.  If anything, God has proven to us again and again this year that HE CAN BE TRUSTED.  With the great and with the small.  

This journey that He has in store for us next will be a good one- we can have complete faith in that.  And in the end, true faith breeds more faith.  What a lesson that has been to learn...

...we have given Him our small seeds of faith, and He has moved our mountains."

May you, too, wherever you are in your journey, find yourself certain in God alone.  Whether your journey is coming to and end, just beginning, or whether you are in the painful middle...may He give you what you need to persevere, nurturing your seeds of faith until the end.  May you learn with every fiber of your being that HE can be trusted. 

May He prove Himself to you today....this week...this year...and for the rest of your life.
