What About Faith “Pay Forward” #17

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - What About Faith. Our Father [Higher Power] always meets His children where they are, however weak we may be. He has given us the right to choose, and He respects that right. Therefore, He will bless us in the measure in which we yield ourselves to His Divine workings, and open our hearts, minds and souls to Him, holding nothing back. Faith in our Father is the opening to receive everything from Him. We can only receive Divine grace according to our faith. Let us not seek to do or to be anything of ourselves, alone and unaided! Except our powerlessness and expect everything from our Father that we realize is His glorious Way. Gifts are granted in greater or lesser measure in proportion to our Faith. Eric Butterworth tells us that we don’t get what we want, we get what we expect. “Have faith in abundance and expect your faith to come through” (Christian D. Larson). “Let it be done to you as you believe.” Prayer without faith is fruitless; It is the prayer of faith that heals. To have faith means to surrender our personal “reality” absolutely. But how is such faith be found? “I believe; help thou my unbelief.” It is not without struggle that we come to believe in our Father willingness to heal and transform us. “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.” Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
