Over the winter, we had a build up of ice on the roof that caused water to leak in our back entry. This weekend Hubby and our boys spent hours in the heat stripping & repairing that section of roof. Hubby expected it to be a simple project because the area was fairly small.
Hmm, not so much.
Hubby accidentally put his foot through a portion of the roof. He stepped out in faith, expecting the section to hold him. Stripping away shingles showed ants had infested the wet wood, causing damage to the core of the roofing structure. Hubby had to replace the rotted, damaged wood with new wood.
As Christians, we have to work hard to keep our foundations solid and protected from things that want to eat away at our structures. Reactions to our circumstances can support our faith or eat away until our cores are weak and unstable. It’s so much easier to say we trust God than to actually step out in faith doing it. Stepping is an action verb. We need to do more doing than saying. And no matter what, God is beside us every step of the way.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV
Your turn: Do you struggle with stepping out in faith sometimes? What keeps you moving forward instead of taking steps back? How would you encourage someone else who may be struggling in their faith walk?
