FAITH MONTH: DAY 9: “My faith is big enough to accept all of God’s wonders.”― Kirsten Miller

Isn’t that wonderful? I think so. There are days when all I ask for is evidence that this is going somewhere. You know what I mean?

It seems that life has a meaning, but I cannot see it all the time. Then I remember it isn’t always about ME. (Not my favorite insight!) And I can see how things are unfolding all around me, so my life must be going somewhere too.

I grow impatient, which is common, far too often, I suppose. But then something amazing comes along and I am blown away by how it unfolds. I love that part. It feeds my doubting mind for another day.

This is something I can only do one day at a time. I don’t know who came up with that phrase for us addicts, but it sure is an important concept.

I have never had enough faith to do a whole week at a time. It isn’t like that for me. I can honestly say though that I have enough faith to do my whole life. Odd dynamic, but it is true. By tomorrow I will need to find more faith to do what is in front of me on that day. This is a fun process. My doubting mind tells me it won’t happen, for sure, tomorrow. That will be the day I lose my faith.  ??????

We shall see…I don’t think so, but I will show up here, or not, and let you know. See ya!
