a little over 4 year ago, my faith and reality collided at a rapid rate. in that moment I needed to decide do I allow this to cause me to turn my back to God or thrust me into a deeper reliance on Him. I’m so thankful to say the latter was the case. instead of asking the numerous “why’s,” it caused me, instead, to immerse myself in my faith and truly make it my own. I can sit here today, knowing He has never left me. my situation will someday help others because my hope is not in this life’s circumstances but in a loving God who will work all things for His glory!
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1 NIV)
