Endurance First Style

Having faith is easy, you just do it. But having faith through the long train of trials doesn’t feel easy all the time. Test, come to try your foundation, and it’s easy to say you have faith and act in faith, until your faith falls out.

You can shortly make a decision to act in faith,  and it feels good- victorious And then comes the uncomforable, dark, long and noisy road of faith. The endurance part of faith. You prayed, had faith , took action for a dream- but the trials around you seem to be mocking you. Where’s the happy faith voices now? An idea looked great on paper, now nothing seems to fit. So we go from doubting ourselves, to doubting God. We focus on the failed attempts happening around us, instead of His promises. It’s not the right timing. For who,God or you?

Our Bites of Style word of the day is endurance: the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way.

“Consider it nothing but joy, my [b]brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4 AMP

With the presidential race well underway, I am reminded of the time I met first lady Michelle Obama. Let’s just say it was a faith fight full of endurance that I can’t wait to share tonight at 7 p.m CST on Bites of Style Facebook Live.
