Day 23: Faith #SteeleThankful Challenge

Day 23: Faith #SteeleThankful Challenge

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

When I tell you that the FAITH WALK is not easy. Baby…let me tell you. Even the believers of Jesus Christ get weary in this walk. And if you don’t, I’m gone say what kinda faith you got cause I want some.

The path can be lit with only a flashlight; meaning you can only see so far down the path. I was traveling down the path of the largest slave plantation in North Carolina when I took this photo.

All I could ever think about when I took this drive every morning to report for my internship is that the slaves could see the plantation home from the slave quarters, but how many had to travel this path. This path that lead them to circumstances that were often times unknown.

On this path called life’s journey you have to trust God. That’s what Faith is all about. When you can’t visibly see the end of the road you believe that God has already worked it out.

Well, that’s the faith I believe in on this day. When the future seems bleak, I find peace in knowing that the path that God has me on is orchestrated by Him. He is the GPS of this journey. I know that the path is leading to unbelievable opportunities.

I’m #SteeleThankful for faith the size of a mustard seed.

What are you #SteeleThankful for?

Walk By Faith…Easier said than done.

Walk By Faith…Easier said than done.

We are almost at the halfway point for the #SteeleThankful challenge.  Time flies when you’re having fun, inspiring, and reflecting on the last year.  The challenge is taking place digitally on all social media networks.  It’s not too late to start, and every time you use the #SteeleThankful hashtag on a public post I respond.  Yes I respond to all of them 😉

I know it’s motivational Monday, but I’ll keep it short this week.

The church I’ve been attending is doing a series on Faith.  We all know that’s not an easy walk.  There are moments when you want to give up, and call it quits.  Sometimes it seems as if that’s the easiest thing to do.

After church I had to seriously reflect upon where I am in this journey of walking by faith.  Am I at the level of “offering” like Abel, “overcoming” like Enoch, or practicing “obedience” like Noah.

I honestly think some days I feel like I’m experiencing all three.  I’m going to spend this week focusing more on my faith walk, and finding clarity for my next level.

It ain’t easy, but it will be worth it.

XOXO,

Don’t forget the challenge.  All month long!
