What is Faith?


FI Reeve

  • Doing the right thing regardless of the consequences and knowing God will turn the ultimate effect to good.
  • Reliance on the certainty that God has a pattern for my life when everything seems meaningless. 
  • Confidence that God is acting for my highest good when He says no to my prayers.
  • Realizing that I am useful to God not in spite of my scars but because of them.
  • Accepting the fact that God knows better than I do what is ultimately good for me.
  • Living with the unexplained.
  • The way to please God.
