Back to the basics: Now, faith is...

by Jeremy

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (ESV)

I've been contemplating this verse in the New Testament a lot over the past several weeks. One of the hardest things about this journey is simply trusting in the Lord for a good outcome. On one hand, we recently were given encouraging news. On the other, we continue to see seizures; in recent days, the number of these seizures has actually increased. Let me just say that watching the latter of these is NOT easy to deal with. But I guess that is the essence of faith- that if the outcome regarding Pinny's seizures were certain, how much faith would all of this require of us? And not just faith in the doctors' judgement. Please pray that our faith in the Great Physician would continue to increase.


  1. Father thank you for YOUR Greatness! You are amazing! You are El Elyon. There is no one above you. You are the Master of the Universe!Abba You are first, there is no second! Please help Jeremy and Stephanie to stand strong in You. You are Faithful! Please increase their faith Oh Lord! Comfort them dear Father. May they have YOUr Shalom(peace. We cry out for Pinny's healing. In Yeshua's (Jesus) name, Amen!

  2. You've heard the saying that faith isn't faith until it is all you are holding onto. There's alot of truth in that, isn't there? We want answers...God wants our faith. We want to reach the outcome...God is more concerned with the process.

    Heavenly Father, I lift up Jeremy and Steph and baby Pinny to You, the Great Physician. God, we believe ~ help our unbelief!!
