A Faith View

"For we walk by faith, not by sight!" ~2 Cor. 5:7

Hey there Amazing People!!! :)
I'm so happy that I have a God Who gives great treasures of truth, that I have a blog that I can share some of those truths that He "highlights" to me, and for YOU, who love the Lord and bless me by reading my posts!  Such happiness!!  

Speaking of happiness - adventures bring me joy and this post is simply to encourage you and boost the joy on your journeys of faith!  I have a favorite book called "Faith Is" by Pamela Reeve! In her awesome book, she lists different aspects and truths of faith and it always helps me see faith in a new perspective and exhorts me to focus on the One Who designed faith and all the blessings that go along with it!! :)   Below are excerpts from Pamela's book(emphasis is mine).  Enjoy!!!! :)

"Faith is..."

"Remembering that in the kingdom of God
EVERYTHING is based on promise 
and not feeling."
"Realizing that what God is going to do
will be on the basis of 
a miracle, not manpower;
not my goodness."

"We live by faith, not by sight."
2 Cor. 5:7


"Something God will
by testing."

"These have come so that you faith - of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire - may be proved
genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when
Jesus Christ is revealed."
1 Peter 1:7


"Not related to my believing 
hard enough, 
nor my emotional exhilaration
or flatness,
but rests on what God
in His Word."

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of
what we do not see."
Hebrews 11:1


"Not faith in faith itself,
but faith in
FACTS of Scripture,
FACT of Christ's death,
FACT of His resurrection."

"Knowing that it is not what I am doing
but what He is doing in me
that really matters."


"Letting go of that which
God is asking me for."


"Taking my eyes off my good self,
or my bad self,
or my wounded self,
and keeping them on Himself."


"Presenting my raw neediness to God 
in utter dependence on Him
to produce in me His life of

"On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you."
John 14:20


"Faith is...
the way to please God.

The conviction:

"I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith."
2 Timothy 4:7

I hope these quotes blessed you today!  My heart is smiling after reading them!  I'm ready to tackle today with my Promise Keeper, Lord and Savior and enjoy every minute of my faith adventure with Him -hope you are too!  Happy trails!!!!!! ;)
