Having Faith

If you read here regularly, you know that my husband just began work as a roofing contractor.

Since this is a job that is completely based on commission, that means if no sales are made, no money comes in.

I won’t lie. I would have felt much better about a salaried job that had insurance coverage and a vacation package, but at least this is an opportunity to bring in income.

I can’t help thinking that God is still working out some kinks in my faith.

I have often pondered the faith of pilgrims or pioneers who would pack everything they had in a ship or covered wagon and head off to an unknown land. Who knew if they would encounter violent thunder storms (no weather radar to check), savage animals (no animal control to call), or starvation (no grocery store on every corner)? They actually had to live on faith.

I don’t think many of us have ever had to live on faith to that level. I know I haven’t.

I have a feeling this new job will teach me a few things about having faith in God’s provision. Who knows if he will make any sales his first month? Or second? Or all through the winter?

One thing I do know. God will provide. I have faith.

  1. I think we do have to live on that type of faith, we just have different dangers. Our culture takes much more for granted, as if we’re entitled to everything. We all think a long full life is guaranteed, so when we see someone live a long life, it’s like a “no brainer” versus a blessing.

  2. Absolutely, Connie…you are so right. He has provided and continually provides and it’s amazing to see the faith walk in action.

  3. One of the best parts about having this kind of faith is that others are watching you and how you respond in every situation. Show them how big your God is!

    Many Blessings,

  4. I agree with Melissa. This is an opportunity for you to glorify God through your faith. Stay strong and remember that God has and will continue to provide your every need. :)
