What is the measure of faith?

I lay down every night, I expect to wake up every morning-and breathe-that’s faith.

I wake up every morning, I expect to be able to see with my eyes, open my mouth and speak-that’s faith.

I wake up, I expect to remember my name, who I am, and where I am-that’s faith.

I wake up, I expect to able to move my arms, my hands, my legs, to get out the bed-that’s faith.

I flip on the light switch, I expect the lights to come on-that’s faith.

I turn on the faucet, I expect the water to come out-that’s faith.

I expect to able to groom myself, put on my clothes/shoes the right way, cook for/feed myself-that’s faith.

I get in my car and turn the ignition, I expect the car to start-that’s faith.

I send my children to school, I expect them to come home safely-that’s faith.

I travel to/from work, school, etc., I expect to arrive/return safely home-that’s faith.

…And when these things don’t happen, I am shocked…

So what is faith?

I am: convicted, confident, convinced; I have a fundamental trust, a reality, a hope, a proof-of what I do not see.

 

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen – Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

 

For all who work in the healthcare profession:

God bless you. You made the decision to serve humanity in the medical field. The years of school, many hours of study, learning twice as much principles, philosophies, methods, etc. of medicine in such a short period of time, large student loans to repay-you sacrificed.

God protect you. Emergency rooms are full, sometimes overflowing with patients. For the many hours on your feet, sometimes eating a hot meal gone cold, patiently dealing with irritated, at times unreasonable, sick patients and upset family members-you’re there.

You’re human. You’re not perfect. You make mistakes. You’re not God.

I praise God for you, and I pray for you. My life is in your hands when I’m sick and in pain, and sometimes what I do on my own doesn’t work. I make it my business to lift you up before God-the original physician, healer, creator, and restorer of my body, of my health. You are his co-laborer, so I ask him to give you wisdom, strength, compassion, and faith. I love, appreciate you, and the care you give!

First Music Collaboration Project

I wrote the lyrics to this song, and sang the leads/ background/harmony vocals on this project, SAY A LITTLE PRAYER. Looking forward to do my own project. This first project was a learning experience
