Faith

Now, faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see....By faith I believed God would send me good strong Christian friends in jr high when my faith was so brand new and He did. By faith I believed God would bring a man named Moses to know, love , and serve Him. By faith, I believed that if God really wanted me to marry this man then it would be ok for me to stop,cease, and no longer stalk, I mean pray for this boy named Moses. By faith, I believed that my second pregnancy wouldn't end as my first and it did not,(Emma Faith). By faith, I believed my lil babies would breathe all through the night even if I wasn't staring at them all night long. By faith, I believed God would heal my son Solomon when he had RSV and he did. By faith.........

Just reading through Hebrews chapter 11 this time made me think of how in my own life of faith I could make my own list of faith testimonies that would bring God glory and how wanting and needing a new measure of faith is never a bad thing. I am praying for this for myself and for others right now.
I would love to hear some of your faith stories. Also what is your favorite story of faith in the bible? My all time favorite faith story is of Abraham and his son Isaac. This story always strikes a chord in my heart that makes me stop and think do I have that kind of faith/trust in my God.

I love the story of Joseph and how he went through such hardship but was rewarded in the end.

Faith stories--I guess my biggest is believing that God would heal my kids.

I think my favorite faith story in the Bible is the story of the bleeding woman--To have the faith that she would be healed just by touching Jesus... I pray for that sort of faith...
In my life, the best faith story is simply that I am alive.

the story of faith that comes to my mind is of abraham & sarah. first, when abraham put issac on the alter to sacrifice him. then, they believed god when he said that abraham would be the father of many nations. they doubted at times, & tried to do things their way, but ultimitly they had faith.

i have many personal faith stories. one that comes to mind is hubby & i having fauth that god will provide for our family while he finishes school. we definitly don't see how all the time, but he always gives us what we need.

Over the years I've been encouraged by the story of Joseph probably the most.

As far as personal faith stories, you'll just have to keep checking my blog for updates. :-)

BTW, it sounds like you've got plenty of faith stories to share yourself. Telling one's own story of faith is a great way to encourage others. Encourage us!
