I am confident nothing we have yet to discover about God will equal or rise above Jesus crucified, buried and risen. We do, however, have many things to learn, and every new lesson deepens our faith. In our faith conversations we discuss possibilities more, and are shaken less by circumstances we have never encountered. Trust teaches us to expand our vision of what God might do, and to exercise patience as He works out the details in our lives. While we still make many requests of God, our dialogue is more centered on learning His will than imposing ours. As we align our hearts with His, we see His hand more often. We still face disappointments and frustrations, but our growing faith gives us a broader context within which to navigate. What once was mostly a verbal conversation of faith becomes a journey.
The best news is, with each experience, our faith can become stronger and deeper. Maturity is a process. And the only thing as certain as the faith we stand in is the fact we will be tested until the day we see Jesus face to face.
How would you describe your conversation of faith with others? With God?
Dear God, help me give more of my heart to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
