Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1)~ There comes a time in all of our lives when we need faith. It’s those times when we can’t see what’s ahead but we must go anyway. It’s in that darkness where we find our inner light. It’s in that darkness where we grow. It’s in that darkness where we become the person we were born to be. Faith always happens in the place where one cannot see. A faith walk is like a blind walk, it’s dark. You have to keep pushing forward with the belief that everything will work out in your favor. While in the situation, your thoughts will shape the darkness. If you allow yourself to be consumed by the darkness, it will stop you. But if you shift your thoughts to those of powerful assertions, you will illuminate the darkness and you will come out on the other side like brand new. We all have gone through rough seasons in our lives. We’ve been tested from every angle. You have to know that it isn’t meant to break you, but to build you. Yes, you want to give in and give up but instead you have to decide to shift your thoughts. Begin to think about the peace in the midst of the storm. Begin to think about the other side of defeat. Illuminate the darkness and your days will begin to change. Out of nowhere your breakthrough will come. The adversary will flee because you will beat him down. Your trials will become triumphs and your life will open up. In faith claim victory in the midst of challenge until you receive victory. Your thoughts can shift the atmosphere. I urge you today to keep walking through that dark tunnel. You may not see the light at the end, but know that it’s there. Let the light inside of you, guide you! Illuminate the darkness with your thoughts and you will see things begin to change. Don’t give in. Don’t give up. There’s only one way out and that’s forward…in Faith!
