Hebrews 1:1; "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not yet seen."

Do I really hope/trust/anticipate that I will really be completed in Christ? Am I convinced and convicted that it will be a reality? Am I convinced that He is enough? That He is able? Faith has such a high price tag to in Him. He knows exactly Who He is and what He is doing. He is supremely confident that He is able, that He is enough. I'm the one who doubts, who walks so often in that doubt- not by faith but by sight.

Philippians 1:6; "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began the good work in you will carry it out into completion in the day of Christ Jesus."

I need to operate today in the reality of the faith, not by sight...not by feelings or circumstances not by what seems to be my current reality of life and situation. By faith in Him and in what He accomplished in His finished work on the Cross. He purchased my freedom and my completion. He is supremely confident He is enough and able and that I am not. He "betting" on Himself and not on me. I guess there really is a lot of freedom, grace, love, and assurance in that- now faith needs to be applied. I once heard Beth Moore say that we need to be Christ followers living lives of "faithing" is a verb. I like that. I need that. Faith.

Where does the time go?

Where does the time go? I haven't posted since January and now it is the middle of February! What's up? Life. Busy, busy life. All is well but honestly a little crazy and more crazy. I'm not even sure anyone notices...know what I mean? This whole cyber-world thing is actually a bit creepy. Who is watching? Is anyone there? Hee, Hee...I crack myself up.

Well, one thing is for sure. The Lord is always there...check out Genesis 16, the account of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar. God reveals Himself as El-Roi, the God who sees. He sees. Hebrews 4 also says that all things are laid out before Him. He sees.

I need to be reminded that He sees. Not just for the sake of Him seeing all things I might try to hide but to know that I am seen. He sees me. He more than just notices. He sees.

Thank you Lord, that although I try to hide I'm seen but also thank you that you just plain see me. All of me. He is more than just aware or around...He sees.
