FAITH

Faith Comes By Hearing

While faith in God is the ultimate goal in life. There are many adventures or steps on the way. As a former athlete who competed in two different professional sports; I've struggled to find another carrot that interest me. Like many we want to be good at something if not great at SOMETHING, but it's not easy to be great at something so we might try and we give up because it's too hard and we aren't successful. We tell ourselves I'm not smart enough or it's just too hard. I've heard that you just need to break things down into smaller steps. While this sounds good and dandy if someone hasn't done it from your shoes or your starting point before or even if they have it can be difficult to find out the steps they took to get where you want to go or be in life.

Sometimes I guess the best advice is "JUST DO IT"; basically get started, keep trying, reinvent the process and look deeper into how others succeeded; or come up with a creative way to make things happen until you are making progress. It can take years to become a professional or expert at anything. One step, two steps, three steps, maybe get knocked down a step or two; get back up and keep climbing; four or five steps forward!

"The three most important things to have are faith, hope and love. But the greatest of them is love."

(1 Corinthians 13:13, NIrV)

How do we love may be the biggest question. We love through the 9 fruits of the spirit. You can love by giving of your time and extra resources!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Be a doer not a talker!

The best thing you can do today is to love someone through your actions. If you can't find the time, heart or extra resources, then have some inner joy; wherever you go and that way you can brighten someones day. Choose joy, choose life and choose greatness. God loves U!
