Never a storm only an opportunity

Have you ever watched a storm roll in? If you are paying attention you can see the signs. The air temperature starts to change. The color of the sky slowly changes; clouds move in front of what may have been a bright blue warm sky. Sometimes the storms come in slowly and you have plenty of warning to get in out of the weather. Other times, they happen so quickly, you blink and there is a deluge of wind, rain, snow or sleet. They happen in our lives that way as well. There are times you can see the...

Understanding Faith

Faith is the substance* of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 KJV) Faith – complete trust or confidence in someone or something (Merriam-Webster) *substance – the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence. Sometimes I think that we forget what faith is. We use the word as if it explains everything. It is not in our words; it is in our actions, that show how much faith we have. You see, it is easy to say that I have faith in something and...
