Unwavering Faith

The weather is finally starting to warm up here! 60 degrees is in the weekend forecast. Time to break out the shorts!

I went for a 5 mile run before the boys were up. The run felt really good, I ran some of the park hills that are still a bit snowy, and the sunrise was gorgeous. When I got back home, we all had sausage, gravy, and biscuits for breakfast. Leo headed to a meeting and Eli and I had our devotional time together. I read the Bible to him every day because Leo and I really want to impress God's Word on his heart at an early age (Deuteronomy 6:5-9). I enjoy reading to him and I know he hears me!

This morning I was studying Romans 4 and came across the story of Abraham and his righteousness. This is such a good Biblical example of unwavering faith in God no matter the circumstances! Even though it seemed impossible for him and Sarah to have children, Abraham didn't lose faith! He stood firm in his faith and God credited this to him as righteousness.
Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:18-25
Each day I want to stand firm in my faith like Abraham. God promises to provide for our needs and I need to remind myself of that and BELIEVE that each day! I have a tendency to live out a "try harder" faith and I'm praying for God to work in my heart and remind me that it's my faith in Him that matters, not my works.
