I’ve been talking with dear friends lately who have hard lives.
Their pain and sorrow I can only imagine, and I myself wonder why they have to go through such struggle. But even after all of the messiness of life is shared between us and the tears fall, these friends confess their faith in Jesus.
Though I’ve not been in their particular shoes, I know those days when God seems so far away–maybe even questioning if He was mad at me.
I’ve been angry with Him.
But time and time I’ve come back to my faith in Jesus, because Jesus is the goodness of God. When I come back to faith in this goodness I experience the peace He promised to those who believe (Philippians 4:6-7).

In the past I’ve written about how important hope is. I have learned the hard way how much we have to have hope. But I’m beginning to realize that we cannot have hope–not the hope that goes beyond what we can see before we have faith in the goodness of God.
So, let’s study faith.
Grab your journal and jot these down or take a screen shot. If you’re on Instagram, I post a new scripture image of each bite every morning. If you scroll down to the footer of this page, you can click any of the social buttons and follow me. And Monday through Friday we also share our faith together on my daily broadcasts that I do through Periscope. During these broadcasts I dig into these verses and find the life inside and how we can apply it to our lives. It’s a sweet time of fellowship.
