Is Your Faith Wavering Today?

I wish I could say I have this faith thing down pat but truthfully there are days my faith can waver. I’m like the father of the demon-possessed boy that says, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”

It’s easy to have faith in God when life is good, but when life gets hard, that’s when our faith is tested.

Is Your Faith Wavering Today?

Life is not always easy, but without faith, where would we be? Hebrews 11:1 says, Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

  • It takes faith to have a relationship with Christ.
  • It takes faith to put everything in His hands.
  • It takes faith in the midst of life’s storms to have peace that passes all understanding.
  • It takes faith to know that heaven is real and this is not our home.

Maybe your faith is wavering today. Cling to Joshua 1:9, Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

 

Have a blessed Sunday!

  1. If one can trust a self-parking car, one should be able to turn over even one life issue to the Lord. Because we are human we have that unbelief, and need His help with that. Thanks for this post as constant encouragement, Cyndi. ❤

  2. Thank you for this reminder today Cyndi! It goes right along with the message our pastor gave yesterday at church and also what the Lord has been trying to teach me over the last several months. It’s hard for me to take my hands off and trust Him to take care of me but I’m learning to let go a little more everyday. 🙂

  3. You know, we can’t afford to allow ourselves to get discouraged, but we’re only human. It’s so important to always remember we have a Loving Father we can turn to and pour out everything before him, and to know he hears and he loves us. Prayers for everyone here who is facing difficulties that threaten to overwhelm you. Prayers to be renewed and refreshed, and that a new and easier path will open before you.

  4. Thank you for today’s scripture, I’ve
    been tested lately with an issue and I
    heard the words,”trust in the Lord”
    and I even had days that seemed like
    I’m pushed back, but I will not let “darkness”
    rule me, because I WILL trust in the Lord!
    Have a blessed evening!!

  5. You are a full time worker (1 job), full time student (another job), wife (you dust, sweep, clean, and cook) a nana(along with the joy, grandchildren are wonderful little energy siphoners!)………….???? Girl, it’s time to smell the roses!

    If I had half your load I would be buckling right now!

    My experience is that God gives us extraordinary strength and stamina to see us through times of crisis, but He never made us to continue along an overstretched path our whole lives long.

    You are doing everything you can to look after your body. Time to give your body some rest! Talk with your family, and see where you can cut down. Take walks in the forest or the by the beach. Have time for deep breaths, beautiful music and time just to think about God, without thinking ‘I should be doing this or that.’

    Give it time, and rest. Did I mention rest???? It will seem very strange at first, but your body and soul cannot renew while your life is so frantic.

    Every blessing as you set out on this new stage of your life, which may end up being the most fulfilling yet!

  6. Oh Cyndi… how I needed this! Thank you so much! I have been fighting with panic attacks and anxiety since I passed out 2 weeks ago. My husband took me to the ER. A CT scan showed a micro bleed in my brain which landed me in a trauma hospital for 3 days which is located over an hour away from our home. Low blood pressure caused me to pass out. I am 53 years old, take very good care of myself, eat a healthy plant-based diet, no medications, practice yoga daily, lift weights, run, step aerobics, kickboxing, a Christian who loves Jesus with all my heart and study my Bible Kay Arthur’s precepts style, I keep asking myself how could this happen to me when I live a healthy lifestyle. My heart is gripped in fear. My mind is anxious. I can’t seem to function. So terrified of every little feeling in my head wondering is this a stroke. I can hardly breathe. I work full time and am a full time student, wife, mom, and nana. The fear is interrupting my life…so many panic attacks. I thought I was standing solid on the Word of God but I have been questioning my faith and Him. Prayers if you happen to think of me. With much love and appreciation to you and your ministry. 😘

    1. Penny – I just read a book that might help called 7 lessons from heaven by Mary Neal MD. It’s a book about the author’s near death experience but I will never doubt God’s love, presence or desire to help again – affirming and life changing.

    2. I don’t know you Penny, but as a Sister in Christ, please know that I will be praying for you. Stay faithful-Jesus is in control.
      With much love.
      Holly

    3. Oh sweet Penny. The Lord does not give us a spirit of fear but of confidence and of a sound mind. First recognize that fear is from the enemy not of God. If you belong to Jesus Christ, nothing can separate you from the love of God, no matter what life deals to you. It doesn’t matter what we do, how fit we are, how busy we are, or how much we study the Scriptures, it’s Who we trust and Who we put our our faith in that holds us together. I’m praying for you to have the peace of Jesus Christ that surpasses all understanding. Praying for your burdens to be placed upon Him who is more than able to carry you through. Keep looking up, then all the outward circumstances of your life will grow dim in comparison to His wonderful light! Eleven years ago I was in a very grave situation where I was not expected to live but God had other plans for my life. My situation and the fact that I lived, was deemed more than a medical marvel but a miracle of God, even by medical professionals! Through my ordeal I learned just how big my Savior is and how small I am apart from Him! He does have purpose in your situation right now. I pray the Lord sustains you and fills your heart and mind with faith and confidence to trust Him no matter what!

  7. I really need to hear this message today. I woke up today not thinking I can make it much longer. After losing a marriage, my son unexpectedly 3 yrs ago and family problems have depleted my faith. My grief is overwhelming some days. Especially after waking from dreams about my son.
    I know he is in heaven but my heart is empty.

    1. I’m very sorry for you, Julie. Sometimes it helps to tell God you have nothing left inside today and to please take over!

    2. Juli
      I’m so sorry you are facing such horrible tribulation here on earth.
      I too are having such heartbreak with my daughter has choose to be estranged from our family for two years now. She tefuses to allow my husband and I to see our grandsons.
      I m thinking and praying for strength for you to go on.
      Donna

    3. Julie, I’m so sorry for the pain in your heart. I prayed for you just now asking God to show you His love in a multitude of ways. And for His people to be a real blessing to you in ministering to help lift your heartache. ❤️🙏❤️

  8. Yes such true words… it’s letting God be in full control whether in good or bad times. But as women I think we still find the need to hold on just a bit and worry… I’m learning with age and wisdom to just give it all to him… I mean things are in better hands right…😀thank you for your encouraging words.

  9. This really hits home. How quickly I can become scared, worried, and fearful when life struggles become too big. I easily become anxious and forget God’s in control. I start to question. My faith and even my salvation ( if you truly were saved, you wouldn’t be so fearful). The evil one really knows what buttons to push! This is when I dive deep into the word and keep praying those scriptures over and over until my heart and mind settle down.

  10. I really needed this reminder. I sat in church looking at the altar this week wondering how to weather all of the current challenges. I “think” I have a strong faith but some days it is hard to see God’s hand.

  11. I so needed these words today. I’m usually a very upbeat positive person but after falling 4 weeks ago and fracturing my ulna near my elbow and being in a sling (and being left handed and it being my left hand) I’m feeling very frustrated. I want to be back to normal but haven’t even seen the doc again yet (Tuesday) to see what’s next. I needed to be reminded that all in HIS timing….I know God is good and He’s got this and I’m ready !

  12. Thanks for these words, Cyndi. I actually feel like in good times I sometimes take my faith for granted. Yes, in those times, it’s easy to think “God is good.” Yet it is the difficult times that really make me lean on Him, knowing He is in charge. Relying on Him in stressful times is what can give me peace, knowing that He has a plan…perhaps one that I don’t understand, but one that is perfect in His eyes. Happy Sunday!
