To walk in faith....

For we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7
 
 
Walking by faith should come natural and be effortless for a believer,
and at times I find it is....
But generally those are the easy times that take ~little~ faith.
 
Over the years I have found in the tough times I'm driven by flesh to walk by sight.
Walking by sight puts me ~in control~ or so I think?!?
My sight is normally clouded by emotions making a bigger mess of things.

Daily I seek to die to self....
Walk by Faith, giving it all over to the Lord....
and just trying to
"Let it Go"

Thankfully when I do this, the Lord in His perfect timing
 makes all cloudy things clear.....
So, I must remind myself to walk by faith...
Letting go, and leaving it all to God!

Those toes are seriously CUTE!! Do all the girls have matching toes? How about the doggies? Them too? haha!

I just had this very conversation today about faith. Isn't it funny, how walking by faith means YOU JUST DON'T KNOW and you have to trust GOD.

I will admit, I'm not always the best one to be able to wait and trust. I like to see NOW what will happen. John is my patient anchor, steady and true. Me....I just fly around like a kite in the wind sometimes. Good thing he sticks around...haha!

Love you!

Finally catching up - it is amazing how things always seem to work themselves out - not necessarily how YOU saw them working out, but in the end - working out the way it should!!!

P.S. - Love those cute little piggies!

This is one of my favorite verses.

LOVE the toenails!
I was reading about the Israelites being afraid to conquer the promised land because their faith was small - - even after experiencing so many of God's miracles. It's a lesson we all struggle with though at different times.
