The scripture for today, January 5 (1/5), is Colossians 1:5 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“…the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the Word of Truth, the gospel.”
Does your faith have its ups and downs? Is it strong sometimes and weak sometimes? When things sometimes go so wrong you have trouble having faith in God? You can still hope. Do you grow angry at God sometimes? You can still hope. During such low times when faith does not come easy, you can still hope. Hope is the springboard of faith.
And stay close to the Word of Truth, for John 14:17 says the Comforter is the Spirit of Truth, and John 17:17 says Truth is the Word of God. Read when you don’t feel like it. Ephesians is what I go to. David tells of his own faith problems in Psalm 42.
When your emotions are pulling you down, rely for a little awhile on only your logic, your intellect, until your emotions heal. Someday they will.
So keep on hoping ~ the springboard. And someday it will return to being faith.
