This is faith via @allyvest
We have this picture in our mind of faith being super serious. At least I do. When I think of faith I think of soft, quiet, spiritual moments of prayer, fasting or meditation. Those things are expressions of faith, sure. But it just occurred to me today that so often faith is just doing life the way we do it, submitting to the reality that we don’t have control over everything, admitting and acknowledging that God does, and that He is good. His reality is better than ours.
If we’re doing life with God, in relationship to him, we don’t have to muster up an experience of faith or call it into being. We have all kinds of opportunities to acknowledge our place in the universe, and His, on a daily basis.
Faith is lived in the everyday, as we admit our humanness, our hunger and thirst, our need for sleep and human touch, our ability to feel scared, sad or hurt. Faith is the act of acknowledging these limitations, and turning to The One who is not limited like we are. It’s asking Him to meet needs we can’t meet for ourselves.
It isn’t mustered or white-knuckled, or gripped.
