Where do you put your faith?

Where do you put your faith?  Some people put their faith in their bank accounts, jobs, relationships, their own ability, the medical profession, et al.  If we put our faith in anything of this physical domain, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment or heartache.

The things of this world are fickle and transient.  Only that which is permanent and true is worthy of our faith.  When we place our faith in a Power greater than us (or this world), we become filled with a knowing that whatever comes our way, we will be able to handle it.

Everyone goes through challenges in life – we have those times when we are lost or confused, where we don’t feel physically well, or our finances seem inadequate for our needs.

Somehow when we go through such difficulties, we find the strength to rise above them.  That strength comes from a Power Greater Than Ourselves.  Faith does not mean we won’t face any difficulties; it means we will be able to walk through them knowing at the other end of the dark tunnel there will be light.
