On any given day I consider myself a woman of great faith. Not because of stories that I have read or been told, but because of my own personal experiences. Encounters where I know it was nothing but the strength, love and grace of God that brought me through.

With that said – I believe there are many people who feel defeated in their faith walk because it doesn’t come natural for them yet. They look around and see the “faith talkers and faith walkers” and think they have it made. But they don’t see the journey that it took to get there.

Yes I am a strong believer that my faith must always trump my fears.

However that doesn’t mean I walk around with a big F on my chest all the time.

It doesn’t mean that I don’t get scared and wonder how I am going to make it through certain situations.

It doesn’t mean that I don’t sometimes allow the stresses of life to weigh me down.

It doesn’t mean that I am immune to heartbreaks, sickness, or attacks of the enemy.

It doesn’t mean that sometimes I don’t exercise bad judgment or make horrible decisions.

Yes, sometimes I worry, sometimes I get angry, sometimes I even cry about the things I see in the natural.

And that’s ok. Those are normal reactions to life’s unpleasant moments and there is no reason to feel ashamed of those moments.

But the key is to not stay and dwell there.

The key is to build up your faith arsenal when things are going well, so that you are equipped for the not so good moments. Study those scriptures on faith and commit them to memory so you can speak to your fears when they arise.
