4 signs you have a ton of faith

Because I'm not sure anyone has told you lately.

• • •

1. You make the best out of the worst. 

You know when worst case scenario becomes "your" case scenario. You think you have a decent relationship with God then something so terrible happens that you just want to ask Him...

I once heard a man say that having a disabled son allowed him to see the honor in living a life of purpose. He considers himself blessed and even favored by God, who opened his eyes and softened his heart toward a group of people he would have otherwise ignored.

Just like him, you see the good in your situation. Now when people show you pity, you convince them that you are the one who is blessed.

He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
[Romans 4:20-21]

2. You are not easily cast down.

Have you ever planned your future based on the belief that everything will work out in your best interest, only to be slapped in the face by reality?

 Like going shopping for a new outfit then finding out you didn't get the job. Or actually getting the job, then getting into an accident and losing your car, which was your only way of getting to the job.

It was so close to going your way.

When something new pops up, your faith does not waver. You have learned to spot a distraction a mile away. Similarly to #1,  you count it all joy when a part of your plan is disrupted. It takes a lot more than a bad day to get you down.'re pretty much a boss.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
[Joshua 1:9]

3. You can evangelize in bad situations.

Remember how you got into that accident in number two? Well you made it out ok (praise Jesus) and now you're that guy at the scene of the collision telling everyone Jesus saved your life..and theirs!

Paul preached in jail.
[I'm sure it's in the bible]

4. You can admit things are out of control.

Some people confuse having a lot of faith with having everything under control. When in fact, having faith can mean just the opposite.

Faith is the the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Meaning- it's what you don't know.

Having a lot of faith means, even when you don't see the end anywhere in sight, you trust God. You can only physically have evidence for things that are seen. For everything have faith.

For we walk by faith, not by sight.
[2 Corinthians 5:7]

And if faith can move mountains, then what's a mere hill to someone like you?

  1. I love the contrast between the serious subject matter and these funny GIFs! I couldn't agree more with these points. I'm always impressed by people who can consistently react in these ways, and I'm hoping to keep growing over time.

  2. Thanks so much Brittany. I agree these point are pretty much #goals, I was definitely basing it off many people who inspire me.

  3. This was right on...especially the misonception betwwen faith and having things under contril i kow i spelt a bunch of word wrong in this setence but whats whta happens when youre typing on a keep borad with acryic nails and your too lazy to go back and fix it. ....but yeah...holly does it again! ...way to keep me "busy" at work lol

  4. Ha! Love this (the truth and the comical). I have been seeing the truth in holding fast, even in the hard. And getting a glimpse at the glory God is working, is, well, amazing. Amazing grace.

  5. Wow, thank you so much Ashley. Holding fast in the the hard is such a struggle. It's so much easier to just break down. Or at least try doing it in your own strength. You're so right....Jesus is beautiful!
