My Faith

     Faith is a funny thing.  It requires trust and obedience.  Two things I've never been very good at.  ;)  However, in order to have Faith, these things are key.  It's difficult to put all of our trust in something greater than ourselves and do our part to see our hopes come to fruition.  When we do, though, beautiful things happen.  It also requires, at times, patience.  Yet another thing I often fail in practicing.  If you can't tell, I've had to continually work on My Faith.

From Pinterest.

     Having Faith has taught me that I'm not always able to do things on my own, and I'm not required to.  It's taught me that even though I want something bad enough, no matter how righteous or good it is, that doesn't be mean I'll receive it promptly.  It might take time.

Again from Pinterest.  I told you I love that site.  :)

      Through Faith I've learned there are sometimes better things waiting for me than I could have imagined.  My husband for example.  Had I married the first guy, or even the second, I ever fell for, I know I wouldn't be nearly as happy and living the life that I know I truly should be.  I'm glad I kept Faith that someday I would find my real Prince Charming.  (Goodness this month is turning into a worship service for Ty.  I suppose he deserves it. ;) )  It took a lot of Faith for me that we would be able to have a child naturally.  It took three years, but it happened.  I really think that it was that release of control and finally letting my Faith take the reins that it happened.  I showed my Heavenly Father I was ready to trust Him fully, that I would do what He wanted me to do, no matter how long.  I'm so happy I did.  Throughout this pregnancy (and I'm sure until its end), I've had to continue with Faith that everything will be all right and that Baby Girl and I will both be safe and healthy. 

I'm thankful for My Faith because of the truths it testifies to me and because it continually guides me in the right direction.
