Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

faith under pressure

Is your faith under pressure?

“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 colors. 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.” James 1:2-4 (The Message)

How we behave when the pressure of life gets intense reveals the depth of our Christianity. Impatience tosses peace right out the window. Negativity tears down hope and trust. Fear cripples faith.

Pressure forces us to see areas that are in need of improvement. Hopefully, then we recognize our great need for God to help us become all that He intends.

When you are frustrated – see it for what it isn’t. It isn’t from God.

God loves us just as we are and that love changes us.

We can spend way too much time and energy trying to figure out why instead of letting our faith in God rise up (Psalm 68:1) and our trust in God quiet our fears.

God will make a way!

til next time,

  1. Great thoughts. Let us never base our faith in God upon what we don’t see, rather, on who we know God to be.
