From Feelings to Faith

 

Having been led by feelings for most of my life, the shift from FEELING and SEEING, to standing on FAITH and BELIEVING, despite what things look like, has been a necessary one. This is the walking by faith of 2 Corinthians 5:7.

I imagine it’s somewhat like a baby who is learning to self-soothe or sleep independently. They are being asked to mature, shifting from old to new.  They ARE safe, their mother IS there, it’s just different. It requires trust; Trust that they’re not abandoned, faith they’re not forgotten. A trust that despite the change, everything that was true before still remains even when they can’t see it.


“for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]—” 2 Corinthians 5:7 AMP

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” Isaiah 49:15 NIV
