Thought for the week

Faith is not an easy path...

Whilst out walking recently, I ended up on a lane which used to be a concrete road.

At least, it looked like it used to be a concrete road – with the rain and the mud parts of it resembled a river bed and it was a step of faith to tread on some of the track not knowing if I was going to hit hard stuff or sink to my knees in mud.

And at the risk of sounding even more like a clich�d preacher than usual, it did remind me of what it means to live by faith – trusting God is with us even when we can’t see how he’s at work.

It might mean speaking out against the crowd, telling the truth even when it’s painful or working hard for what’s right for no obvious reward.

Faith isn’t the easy path, but it is the one that’s solid.
