Peace Perspective XVIII: Walk by Faith

Happy Sunday my friends! Has anyone else’s facebook newsfeed been filled with people jumping in cold water? Or bible verses? Thankfully I haven’t been tagged in either of these chain letter-esque activities (and no need to thanks).

Without any public pressure I’m sharing my favorite bible verse today. This is the verse I chose when I was confirmed, and in actuality, I first loved the verse from the Save the Last Dance soundtrack, but shhh, let’s pretend its completely a religious background.

Walk By Faith Not By Sight

Having faith is hard. Often in life I want all the answers, all the details, right away, before I make a decision. Generally that is not possible. And it is so easy to start stressing about the unknown.

My favorite word in this verse is “walk”. We’re not being asked to leap into unknown. We’re asked to walk. Take a step, then take another. There’s no need to rush and miss the details.

Do you make leaps of faith? Or steps? Or do you need to see the details before taking action?
