Spiritual Sundays

singing birds

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.
Hebrews 11:1 NIV

Commentary: Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.
Oswald Chambers

Thanks go to Charlotte and Ginger for faithfully hosting Spiritual Sundays.

Isn't it interesting? One of the recurrent theme of Spiritual Sundays this week is FAITH. The Holy Spirit always leads us to write about what we need. These are turmult, uncertain, even scary times... but the Lord will see us through. Love that quote by Oswald Chambers. Have a great week!

I learned this Scripture as a definition of faith back when I was a teenager during Vacation Bible School. Thanks for posting.

i'm feeling like one of the 'ancients' today! :)

thank you for the reminder that we believe, 'just
because', not because we see. because He is and
always will be faithful!

I just noticed Clif commented that he learned that verse in Vacation Bible School as a teenager. I learned it there too. Same VBS in Lawton, Oklahoma. What a long time ago. Things you learn young have a way of staying with you.
Thank you for sharing.
