I have faith in my Abba Father.
By the time this is published, my mom will have had her second hip replaced. She also has a pacemaker/defibrillator and needs some new knees. We kid her and tell her she will soon be a “bionic woman”. And going through airport security? Well……let’s just say she needs to have those cards out and ready should she decide to fly to the Bahamas.
She has a pain tolerance level higher than anyone I have ever seen. She has endured plenty in her life, in physical and emotional ways. She is a trooper. And of course I love her. Although it is still simply amazing that our mothers can make us feel like 12 year olds sometimes. I am sure that I do that to my adult children too.
So, I covet your prayers for my Momma’s speedy recovery.
And I know everything is ok. No matter the outcome I have faith in my Abba. Can I explain my faith? No, I just know He is always faithful.
Does that mean everything turns out exactly as I pray it will? Nope. Abba Father doesn’t work like that, at least in my life. Turns out, HE knows what is best. HE knows when it is best. And sometimes I have no idea what He is thinking. Maybe it is best that I don’t know. And yes, I do question Him sometimes.
And that is OK.
Someone once asked me how I knew that what I believed was actually true? I don’t. I am not a apologist and cannot always argue my faith with those who would like to. I just know that HE is a constant in my life. And it is the Holy Spirit’s job to go before me with anyone who questions my faith. I cannot make anyone believe what I believe. It is a choice that I pray people can make upon His prompting.
I couldn’t get through my life without my faith. I depend on HIM in all areas. HE is always faithful.
And He will ALWAYS be.
