Finding Faith

Image

 

Did you know it was lost? 

              There are times when faith is misplaced or spent on the wrong kinds of things.  

It can consume us…

 

We place too much faith in…

                                                  this:  Imagethinking if we just had a little more of it we’ll be happier and better off

but it doesn’t ever seem to satisfy our longing for more.  

                                                                           Sure it staves off the hunger for a while, but soon…

we hunger for more, and so our faith

in money is just never satisfied. 

 

 

Other times we place our faith in

friendship.  

Sure we need friendships, and relationships. 

We need to laugh and to cry and to have people in whom we 

can confide…

 

                           but…

 

when our friends become our faith

                            when we would do anything for their attention 

                                                     when faith turns into an unhealthy obsession

                                                                                            at some point 

These friends are NOT going to always be there for you…

                                                                              and so…

Shattered

                                                                                     your faith in friends gets…shattered.

Finding faith in government or power is also equally devastating.

                                                We can pour our souls into following a political candidate 

                                                                            or campaigning for a specific cause

and these are can be good things…

                                                        but it these faiths in government 

                                                                                     and

                                                                                          power

                                                                                             and 

                                                                                                 causes 

consume us

Real faith.

        Real devotion

                 Real relationships

Faith isn’t some

This faith, right here, right now   is placing our whole being before a God who cares and loves us.  

Faith can be found.  

                                                   The question is
