Have A Little Faith

Those that know me would say that I am not one to push my religious belief onto anyone. I have a thing where I will tell people about what I believe in and if you are not interested that is the end of the conversation for me. We are all entitled to the right to believe whatever we want.I just think you should believe in something. I have gone to a Baptist church all of my life. But I am also open to other religions. I do spend a lot of time reading up on them and seeing how they work. We all need to have a little faith in something. We need to believe that it is something bigger out there than man. I will admit that I have questioned my faith but at the end of it all I still believed that it is a God out there. I have friends and even some family members that say they don't believe because God didn't answer a specific prayer. Well I don't think it works that way. Sometimes we only pray to God when we need something. You also have to do some work when you pray. Sometimes when my faith is feeling a little shaky I think about the people in my life. Some of them have endless faith in God. Nothing stops them from giving thanks.One of my aunts has cancer. Some days she feels good and other days not so much but every Sunday that she is able she goes to church. She says that I believe in my heart that I am going to be ok cause I have prayed and put it in God's hands. Some people would have gave up but she didn't. In the bible it says all you need is the faith the size of a mustard seed. When you think the actual size of a mustard seed,God is not asking a lot out of you. That means that you should not be afraid to gave him praise. You should be about to give the God you serve praise any where you are. If someone or something can not except your belief in God than that was not the situation for you. Once I was listening to Rev.Jamal Bryant and he said you should not be afraid to dance for your God.If you have to walk it out for him than you do so.If you have to whop it out for Jesus than you whop it out to the best of your ability. As long you put your best self forward to him than you are going to be ok. Now I realize that some people may not feel the way I feel but I say believe in something. I made the decision to believe in God a long time ago. I am not perfect in my faith but everyday is a learning experience for me. I know that he sees I am trying to live a life that would please him. Do you have faith?
Peace and Love!
