everything is possible when you have faith.

Okay, so I've been pretty bad about this whole following k-love's encouraging word of the day thing. Forgive me? Good.

I would write about today's but I've got other things on my mind. I'm pretty much incredibly stressed out right now, and I'm trying really hard to keep faith and not give up hope.

My grandma bought me a new ring the other day. It has the words "Everything is possible when you have faith" inscribed on it and I'm pretty much in love with that quote. It's been helpful the last few days when I've been stressed to look down and see those words on my finger. It's really a great reminder.

However, I wish I didn't need a ring to remind me that God is here with me through everything and through my faith in Him I can do anything. I mean sure it's nice and I love that the whole world can see the love I have for the Lord but I feel like I'm just going through the motions in my spiritual walk. The song Motions by Mark Schultz pretty much describes how I've been feeling lately.

I went to church yesterday for the first time in a month or so. And it felt amazing. I forgot how great it made me feel, even if I was running on only 4 hours of sleep. I know you don't have to attend church to have faith and be a Christian, but it's a big part of it for me. To know I am surrounded by all of these other people who share the same love for Christ as I do. It's such an overwhelmingly amazing feeling.

I am just ranting. So I apologize. But when I'm stressed writing just keeps my mind off of other things. I know no one reads this, but it's nice to pretend. Right? Right.

Anyway, I was flipping through the bible (And by that I really mean I was browsing the bible online. Technology is really amazing these days, isn't it?) looking for some sort of verse to help me get through these troubled times and I found a lot, but this one really made me smile and feel better instantly.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. (Psalm 46:1-3)

It just reminds me that even if the world was coming to an end, God is still there. And He always will be. He's one man who will never break your heart, one friend who will never betray you. And I am so thankful for that.
