Faith

"NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]" Hebrews 11:1 (Amplified).

Faith is not simply saying that what God says is true; true faith is acting on what God says because it is true. Faith is not so much in believing in spite of evidence, but obeying in spite of consequences.

(I wish I could give credit to who said this. It was a sermon note that my good friend, Rochelle, had written in her Bible, and she's forgotten who said it.)

See--there was no need for you to stay cautious. Just truly believe that what you believe is real. Love you, Mom

Levi came in as I was looking at your blog and saw the pictures of JJ. He said, in Levi speak, "It's Levi". I tried to tell him "No" it wasn't Levi, but he was very insistant.

Keep that faith!!

Love you,
Missy
