LIFE: A FAITH WALK...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

Over the lintel of
OUR FAMILY ROOM DOOR to our screened-in three season room is a LONG NARROW PLAQUE that reads: WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT...

THAT SCRIPTURE PASSAGE FROM 2 CORINTHIANS 5:7 is sandwiched by the preceding verse which reads: SO WE ARE ALWAYS OF GOOD COURAGE...AND the passage immediately following which reads: WE ARE OF GOOD COURAGE...

THESE PASSAGES are to remind us that WE ARE NOT YET WITH THE LORD but we need to maintain our FOCUS ON HIM while we continue our journey here on Earth...SOMETIMES THIS IS NOT EASY...

NEVERTHELESS...This is what we are called to do as Saint Paul reminds us in his letter to THE CHURCH AT CORINTH...THAT'S WHERE THE COURAGE COMES IN...!!!

Reminders such as these are strewn throughout our home...because we realize WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET TO OVERCOME WHAT THE WORLD, THE FLESH, AND THE DEVIL THROW AT US...

We refer to these SACRED IMAGES, SCRIPTURE READINGS, and OTHER RELIGIOUS ART as SACRAMENTALS...Because they are reminders that draw our attention to THE LORD, AND THOUGH WE CANNOT SEE HIM, HE IS NEVER FAR FROM ANY ONE OF US...

THUS WE CAN JOIN SAINT PAUL in his encouraging words TO WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT...!!!

FAITH IS A GIFT OF GOD AND A GRACE THAT NONE OF US DESERVE BUT THAT ALL OF US ARE OFFERED...SAY YES TO GOD TODAY...!!!

HAVE A GREAT AND INSPIRING WEEKEND...!!!

Fran, i often wonder how i made it in my life without the Lord. I guess we can know by looking around us at the disarray. Who says that Satan is locked up. He is walking about as a roaring lion looking for those he can devour. If you as a Christian are not being attacked by the evil one then maybe you should evaluate whether you are a follower of Christ or not.

Mike,

AMEN...!!! When I drifted away from The Lord for about 15 years, I never sensed Satan's influence...SIMPLY because he (Satan) had me just where he wanted me...no need to 'waste' time on me...attack someone who was following The Lord...!!!

Thanks,   Fran
