Choosing a word for the year is a lot like buying a car. Sometimes it chooses you, sometimes you choose it. But always it defines you. You see your model car everywhere you go, whereas before you bought it, you never saw it. The same with faith. It chose me this year and certainly defines me in ways I never imagined.
During services, I am more closely attuned to the scriptures that mention faith, whether being read by a reader or preached about by the preacher. Even when I’m thinking about something else, the mention of faith attracts my ear.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Walking in faith is walking in confidence. I like to think that God has given me the faith to walk forward with him, and in so doing, walk forward in the dreams I have.
Dreams of a future in politics, whether publicly elected or as the parliamentary assistant to someone elected. Dreams of a photography business that sustains a lifestyle of generosity and helpfulness.
How are you working towards achieving your dreams?
