Prevailing Faith

Prevailing faith talks easy, but does hard–at least some of the time.  A situation came up several months ago that devastated me.  I felt left out.  My opinion was not even considered.

“How could I be any less valued?” I thought.

I was drawn to a piece I had read just days before:  “Faith is not faith when it sees, wills, and gets what it wants.  Faith is not the same as self-confidence, natural optimism, or positive thinking. Faith is only faith when it depends on God and not self.”

God was prevailing with me so my faith would grow, and I would learn that faith is not dependent on a person, place, or thing.  Only He is my source.
