Faith Falling

Faith Falling - It takes faith to fall into Christ's loving arms
A man fell off a cliff and grabbed a branch on the way down. 

Dangling by one hand, he yelled, "Is anyone up there who can help me?" 

A voice thundered from above, "This is God. Let go of the branch." 

The man thought a moment ... 

"Is there anyone else up there who can help me?" 

I heard this joke many years ago, and there are times I've felt exactly like that man dangling from a branch, afraid to trust God completely. 

I wonder if Noah, Abraham or Moses ever felt that way?

I think they did, but they let go of the branch. 

And everything went great for them. 
Right? 
Wrong!
   

"All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance." 

Faith isn't believing everything will turn out great. It's believing God knows what He's doing even when it doesn't.

  2. Thank you Gail for all your faithful reminders. My life has become more and more busy than before. But I never miss you read your BLN, they are food for my soul, and I wanted you to know that. I follow you every day even when I don't have a second to write a note. Today I have the flu and I am blessed to be able to read this and catch up with other posts of yours. Praying God keeps using you in other people's lives the way He has in mine.

  3. Faith faith that Yeshua is. All the rest of the stuff written is really learning God's ways not our ways or His thoughts are not our thoughts.

    Some things are so clear, it's given. By His stripes we are healed. Now. So we do exactly what Jesus did as seen in the scriptures in the Gospels. Casting out all ailments physically, emotionally and mentally because one of these come from God for any reason. IT'S all from the demonic realm.

    Money, crazy relationships-his scriptures tell us to not be in bad company or unevenly yoked.

    Money is a biggie and there's to much prosperity gurus teaching stupid. Crazy things happen to all of us. Scripture says He isn't a respective of persons. Stuff will fall on the just and the unjust.

    He's not a religion but a personal relationship not a religion.
