Strengthening Faith

What then is faith? It is what gives assurance to our hopes, it is what gives us conviction about things that we cannot see [Hebrews 11:1]
Two years ago, my friend Val gave me a MudLOVE bracelet bearing the word faith.
I've worn it a lot and it has sparked interesting conversations. 
The other morning I went to put it on, and the pink elastic snapped.
Fortunately I found some narrow black cord elastic in my stash. I put it with my holiday packing. I carefully photographed the way the pink stuff was knitted then dismantled everything. It took three attempts to get it right - but it is now repaired and back on my wrist. 
A good reminder that sometimes life takes it out of us, and our faith may be weakened. But God longs to strengthen and renew our faith. Even when we are weak, he holds on to us.
I know my sheep, and no-one shall pluck them out of my hand


  1. Glad you were able to repair that special bracelet.

  2. Thank you! I needed the reminder today.
    Love and prayers x

  3. Some days it's tougher than others to have faith - today was one of those. I attended a funeral for someone I've known for a few years - only 40 - committed suicide after the loss of his partner just a couple of weeks ago. It was very sad.

    1. So very sorry to read this Margie. There are no easy answers or glib platitudes. May God give you strength and peace at this difficult time.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
