Children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children born in one's youth. Blessed are they whose quivers are full. They will never be shamed contending with foes at the gate. ~Psalm 127:3-5

The Beauty of FAITH

The Beauty of Faith is like this:

when you're wandering around a dark tunnel in life and you're not sure what's in there with you, or how long til you see the light, Faith is what assures you that nothing can harm you and there is a light there somewhere

and

when you're hanging onto sanity by the last thin thread you can find, worried that it will break, Faith is what assures you that it won't

and

when you're in agony over something really difficult, making you feel weak and vulnerable, Faith is what reminds you how strong you are in Christ

and 

when you have nothing in your bank account and half your bills are still due, Faith is what assures you that God will always provide

and 

when you find out you're pregnant with another baby and aren't sure you're even doing right by all the others, Faith is what assures you that God fills in where you fail, and your children will grow up with hearts for Him

Faith takes you beyond the fear and doubt and vulnerability of your sinful, desperate soul and lifts you up to realize the infinite love and mercy of Father God.

Faith is a belief in things that are hoped for, but not see. =) I think it's possible to have faith in many things--a spouse, yeast raising bread dough, yourself...but the only source that will never fail is our loving Father. =) Great post.
