Faith Note

This quote from E. Stanley Jones about faith and worry had to be shared. 

“I am inwardly fashioned for faith, not for fear. Fear is not my native land; faith is. I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is the oil”.

Faith is the soil and substance of our belief.  Without it, it is impossible to do anything that pleases God.  Faith means we can and will do it.  We take the leap and move from yesterday into tomorrow.  Faith means we go beyond the surface, beyond the chaos, beyond our fears into the glory of God.   Faith shines brightest in those dark moments when all our human efforts have failed. 

Remember today, that faith is your native land.  Pack your bags and leave the land of Fear-False Evidence Appearing Real, and go home to Faith.
