.faith.

"Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see."
Hebrews 11:1

This is the verse of the week, and it has so much meaning. Hebrews 11 is all about faith and gives numerous accounts of people who have walked in their faith. It is extremely important that at the end of the chapter we recognize that many people accomplished great victories and others suffered. Its easy for us to see that when we have faith we can accomplish great things, and thus by accomplishing great things we Thank the Lord. But when we suffer many of us turn from our faith, when God may be allowing us to suffer in order for us to lean on Him more and learn from Him & about Him. If you are suffering or going through a struggle in your life turn to God and ask Him - Lord, what do you want to teach me?

I hope these verses in Hebrews help you to live out your faith every day.
