As we walk down the path of life, we will encounter some storms. Some of these storms are bigger and scarier than others. Sometimes, it's storming on your life while others have sunshine. Storms will come and go. Some could last an hour and some could last a day or two. You might even go through a long period of time without a storm. When these storms come, who do you look to? Do you look to your friends? Your family? Your spouse? Although they might be able to provide a little bit of shelter, there is Someone we can look to that can clam storms.
My heart is on fire and has been for the past month or so. I'm on fire for God. Everywhere I look, I see God's great and awesome power and how much He loves me. It fills me with great joy, knowing that Someone so big and powerful could love somebody like me. I'm far from perfect and yet, He still loves me despite my flaws. I make mistakes; sometimes the mistakes are so big that I think that no one should or even would forgive me. Yet, He forgives me (Daniel 9:9). His love for you and me is very strong; it even saves our lives (John 3:16)
I don't know much about running, but I do know that you can't just get off of the couch and go run a marathon. You have to train. You have to put forth a bunch of effort many months ahead of the big day to finish that marathon. We run a race of faith every day. We have to train and expand our faith at the same time as we're running so that way we won't give up. So, what are some types of faith that we need to have to continue running the race?
