“Live By Faith, Not By Sight”

Since it is coming to that time of the year when everyone begins to reflect about the year….let’s just say I have had time to do some reflecting. Last week in one of my quiet times I read 2 Corinthians 5:7 which says, “For we live by faith, not by sight.” I can’t count the amount of times that I have read this verse or heard it referenced. However, this time I see this verse in a whole different way. I feel like this has been a year where I am truly beginning to understand what that verse means.

From the start of 2014 taking a huge step in faith and beginning to dive head first into focusing on getting healthy. Not knowing what things were going to look like but trusting God and the past 8 months have been amazing, I am able to do things I never thought I could do and for the first time in a long time I am beginning to feel good about myself!

Ministry at Living Hope this year has been filled with a lot of times of living by faith especially when it came to curriculum and deciding what would be best for different events we were doing throughout the year. I have had days when I wondered what God was doing because I wasn’t seeing anything and then a Life Skill Educator would share something that happened at club or I go to club and see the children really understanding how God’s word applies to them.

This past month has been a definite living by faith from having to make the decision to have surgery, finishing work earlier than planned, and having complications from the surgery which is now causing a slower recovery.

As I reflect on the year, I can see why God allowed certain things to happen and of course the things He has taught me through the situations. Which brings this verse back into my mind of “living by faith, not by sight”, I know God is in control and the reminder I may not see it that is why it is called a FAITH journey! God is definitely reminding me He is in control and He has plans and I need to be patient and at this point take it one day at a time and He will reveal things in His timing not mine!!
