What are you looking at?
Your disobedient children (or spouse)?
Your fading hope in dreams that may never come true?
All the pieces of your life that seem scattered and disconnected and falling apart?
Stop right now!
Faith believes God no matter what....it doesn't go by sight or discouraging reports. Faith = taking hold of Christ, keeping hold, and not letting go. It's putting your hope and trust in the truth of His Word, and then walking it out.
Whatever the circumstances of your life, keep praying, keep holding on.
Pray prevailing...He's listening even when it doesn't seem like it.
