Surviving on faith....   |   Friday, October 8, 2010





Sometimes faith is all we have.
faith |fāθ|
noun.
1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something : this restores one's faith in politicians.
2. strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
• a system of religious belief : the Christian faith.
• a strongly held belief or theory : the faith that life will expand until it fills the universe.


After waiting a year after finding her lump, Addie J., finally went to the Dr. to investigate.... (sometimes faith is all we have to hang on to).
She was given the diagnosis of Stage 4 Breast Cancer, and her faith still remained.
Regardless of the "proof" of a biopsy, she still hangs onto her faith and her family. She says, "This has totally changed my life. I look at things totally different. Besides my family, I only have God to hang on to." Sometimes faith is all we have and reaching out to a God we can't see our touch, but still believe in and believe He will help us.
That's what faith is, believing in something we can't see or touch. An object of belief. The promises of God. Word or honor pledged. Trust in God's character, belief in His testimony and entire reliance on His healing.
Sometimes faith is all we have.

Addie J.,

Your faith will see you through this, I know from experience. God is ALWAYS faithful, He cannot lie, and His Word says in Psalm 34:15, 17: "The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of ALL their troubles." My sister, you are delivered! My prayers are with you and your family.
