I love because God first loves me
 
I am called / commanded to love God back
I am called / commanded to love my neighbor just as I love myself

endings and beginnings – on faith – 5/23/13

faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
faith says, count it a joy when you experience trials, for that produces patience
sometimes faith is a “just trust me” from friend or foe, king or lord
and I wonder how my experience of faith fits in with all the things I’ve been told. Continue reading

Faith grown – 8/11/12

Ha! I’m told I over think things sometimes. (I don’t think I over think usually, do I, really? 🙂 ) Even my Gallup Strengths (Strategic, Ideation, Learner, Data …. and oh yes, Competition) seem to lend credence to the idea. I find it interesting to think about the ways faith works and plays a part in most everyday activities, even (and perhaps especially) as I find my faith in the God of Love growing). Continue reading
