Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.

Faith in God includes faith in his timing. Habakkuk 2:3
I gave the oldest middle lovelies a task last week and they met the challenge with flying colors. Their work was so great I just had to share! I gave each of the students a paper billboard and asked them to design a colorful and meaningful message that would help others understand the importance of faith. I told them I would hang the best ones in the hall. They were so good we hung them all throughout the entire building. We had been discussing the gift of faith given at Baptism, and the faith of those in Sacred Scripture but the challenge was to make the meaning come to life for their peers in easy to understand language. I hope you find their messages as inspiring as I did and I hope you finish this post with a fresh perspective and some words to ponder.
*Faith doesn’t make things easy; it makes them possible.
*Faith is bigger than fear.
*Faith is like soap: you can never really use too much.
*Faith is not hoping God can, it’s knowing He will.
*Faith is not knowing what the future holds, it’s knowing who holds the future.
*Faith is seeing light with your heart when all your eyes see is darkness.
*Worry ends when faith in God begins.
*Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.
*Faith doesn’t make sense, that’s why it makes miracles.
*Faith can move mountains but don’t be surprised if God hands you a shovel.
And one of my very favorites… Faith is like a disease…it spreads quickly!
A Seed To Plant: Pick one of the thoughts above and pray with it for the week.
Blessings on your day!
