We pray for our kids. We pray for our families. We pray for their safety every day and every night. When something happens, like death, that faith we had, its gone. It is gone just like that.

What exactly is faith? Hebrews 11:1 reads "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." It is also a prerequisite for hope and love. It is a belief in something and a requirement to possess other things. Believing in Jesus and being saved are synonymous with faith.

Today, I get a phone call that my house is on fire. Well, I am picturing flames going all over the place. I pray every night for God to keep Zach safe. My faith today is pretty strong because, he did just that. It wasn't a massive burn the house down fire but, it caught some of the living room on fire. I thank God because, Zach was awake. Had he been asleep, I would not be here writing this.

My faith is pretty strong today because I visited with my cousin John, Mandy and sweet Nat and it was wonderful to see her awake, alert. Smiling. Crying. Showing me things she can do. But, faith can also be pretty weak. Like that day that I realized everything I prayed for to happen, didn't. That the prayer to keep Lezlie safe, well I didn't feel it was answered. I just know God has one awesome army he's bringing back when he comes.

If you read the Bible, then you know faith has been lost by some great people. King David was a doubter. Peter denied Jesus and Judas, well we all know what happened to him.

Faith is a lot like trust. It is probably a lot easier to lose than to get back. When someone breaks your trust, you have the hardest time in the world trusting them again. You doubt them. Broken faith in Jesus can be like that. You pray for safety for your kids. They get illnesses that cannot be cured or, they are taken in an instant. But you prayed hard and you prayed faithfully. And you ask WHY? And you ask it over and over and yet, no answer. But, we are taught that we will get that answer when we see Jesus face to face.

Faith can vary, just like emotions. Trials, tribulations and even sin can mess with out faith. We can even assume that when all is well, so is our faith. When we are shown hardships, we are shown our weakness. The apostle Paul said this was to cause us to have greater trust in the lord but, sometimes you feel you can't. When bad things happen, you feel God has given up on you and you just in turn do the same.

So, you do what you can to regain your faith. Like trust, it isn't easy. It is not easy to regain faith if things continuously happen to make you doubt. But you have to believe and trust in God enough to know that he will be there.

I know this firsthand. I know that my faith is becoming stronger and stronger and sometimes I backslide but, I stand back up and keep on moving. My goal is a pretty high one, Heaven. I will get there and you can join me or you can be left behind.

Isaiah 43:2 "When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
