TRUSTING (BELIEVING) GOD BRINGS PEACE AND ENJOYMENT
If you want to enjoy your faith, you should start with fully believing in the source of that faith. If you are believing in God, believe wholeheartedly. If you believe in yourself, ditto.
Whatever you are applying your faith to, the ingredient which makes it work is really believing. This brings peace of mind and confidence which makes the experience enjoyable.
DAILY ENGAGEMENT IN FAITH BUILDING BRINGS CONTINUING ENJOYMENT OF YOUR FAITH
When you read, feed and/or engage in faith building projects, it tends to elevate your faith experience. This is true however you apply it. So, grow your faith daily for daily increase of joy.
BAD EXPERIENCES DAMPEN FAITH ENJOYMENT, BUT DON’T ELIMINATE IT
Tough times will test your faith, but if you hold steady, will not destroy it, rather can build it. As has been said, “tough times will either make you bitter or better”. The difference in results can be found in whether one emphasises the “I” or the “E”.
“I” equales the self centered approach which deadends in the ‘woe is me’ syndrome.
Emphasising the “E” is to endeavor to learn, not burn, from the experience and use it as a stepping stone to a more stable and enriching faith.
SHARING YOUR FAITH BRINGS ENJOYMENT TO OTHERS AND STRENGTHENS YOURS
As and when you move forward through the trouble, the positive impact you experience and share, will enrich your life and encourage others to believe through the “impossible” things.
Day by day, come what may, the enjoyment of your faith will bring you happily through to a well rounded, faith founded place of contentment. As the Good Book says, “Godliness, with contentment, is GREAT gain.”
