Feed Your Faith and Your Fears Will Starve to Death
Friday, December 14, 2012
I have been doing some thinking and really wondering why I haven't lost this weight. Why when I see so many have taken off the weigh and kept it off, why haven't I? I think I may have figured it out, it isn't laziness, lack of planning, or lack of motivation. It is fear. I know what I have now and getting slim I don't know what that will be like, or how it will really change me.
I have started this December a book 31 days of Faith, finding joy in your anguish. Chapter 4 from this book is Faith Inspiration, I want to share some of the quotes with my friends plus keep it ready available for me.
Let your faith be bigger than your fear.
Faith is knowing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught to fly.
Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.
"I have learned that faith means trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse." Philip Yancey
"Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase." Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The future is as bright as your faith." Thomas S. Monson
Faith come from knowing the word of God.
Life is short, pray hard.
"Faith ends where worry begins. And worry ends where faith begins." George Mueller
Without faith nothing is possible; with faith nothing is impossible.
Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.
Faith is not believing that God can, it is knowing that He will.
Faith is being able to risk failure. " Faith assures us of the things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see." Hebrews 11:1
As Joyce Meyer says, "Do it afraid."
I am going to have faith in myself and in my Creator who wants a better life for me. Where I am physically is not where He wants me, it is where I have put myself. I will feed my faith and starve my fears to death.
