Day 95-South Side, Pennsylvania: Keeping Our Faith
How do we keep our faith? How do we allow ourselves the opportunity to make it through the dark into the light? How do we manage our lives when temptations push us closer and closer to a death away from God? These are the questions we ask ourselves if we really do want to give our lives to God, but are struggling with the ups and downs in this world. We are all sinners, as no one is exempt. Therefore, instead of driving our car off the road, we have to keep driving straight no matter the obstacle in our path.
When we are pushed to our limits, death may start to feel like the only way out. We could be feeling alone or like we have hit a wall in life that we can never get over. With God you will always get through those difficult moments. Like the song line, “just beyond the river bend”, it always gets better if we just latch onto God. If we quit we will never know what is around the next corner and how our lives are going to change. If we take that plunge, we do not get a second chance to prove to God that we are worthy of His love.
Many times we beat ourselves up and think that we are not worthy or deserving of what God has to give us. A point to remember is that money does not give us access to Heaven. In that context, what is one missed payment on our car or house anyway? Will we not survive if we give up all of our “stuff”? We may think that a financial or a family crisis is unbearable and we cannot live another day. However, with God the next hour could reveal the miracle that we have been praying for weeks, months or even years in some instances. We just have to keep our faith in God and take the road at the fork that keeps us in the right direction along our journey with Christ.
