The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer,
my God, my rock in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Ps 18:2)
We each come to faith or have faith awakened in us by a variety of circumstances. It may be our family It may have been the school we attended. It may have been a chance meeting. However, coming to faith is different from continuing to believe or having our faith strengthened. Situations will arise that test our faith. That you are reading this means that something or someone helped you through. Getting through tough times through our faith invariably strengthens our faith. Thus the Scripture passage will ring true for you – as it does for me.
Our task is to help guide our young people towards faith. If when the time is right, we share our experience of faith helping us through the tough times, then we plant a seed, a possibility. The Holy Spirit will nurture that at the right time.
Have a great week!
