Give me faith…

“Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we must be saved by love.”-Reinhold Niebuhr.
God, increase my faith this week…keep sending those storms my way because I am reminded of where to look when the storms are raging. I know who to call for help. I know you don’t want me to sink and perish in the storms, you need me to weather the storms and perfect my faith further…

“Consider it a sheer gift friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colours. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” James1:2-4
