The Faith

I have a framed verse in our family room; it hangs by the couch so I see it every morning. It is Hebrews 11: 1

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

It's been a good reminder for me, for there is much right now that I am hoping for. We still are struggling in our business and I continue to come before God, hopeful that something will get better. As I watch my husband work hard, but our finances continue to decline, my faith that God has something much better in store moves me forward.  With this season upon us and my children full of anticipation, I know that we cannot give to them what they hope for, but I am praying God will enable them to know His joy and feel His love this Christmas. And, I will have increased faith in Who He is.
We are blessed this season with family and friends and the gift of life and time with many of them. We are blessed to have the gift of His salvation, the hope of heaven. We have the faith of Jesus in our hearts, the love of family to resonate deep within us, and the love of friends that are connected to us through the family of God. All of this, deeply rooted within me, gives me faith that there is much more to hope for .  Faith that my children will have a joyful, and delightful Christmas this year!
Jesus, You truly are the reason we celebrate the faith of this season, spread Your hope throughout my family and bring Your peace. Say That Again, faith is the substance of things hoped for!
