choosing faith: 31 days to seeing God in the midst of it all

 

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” ― C.S. Lewis

Every October a challenge begins called Write 31 Days – you write every day in October on one topic.

I did this challenge a few years ago aannnddd I never finished.  (Hello consistency problems).

But I want to get back into the habit of writing again.  I miss it.  I love it.  Writing is my passion.   So I thought maybe Write 31 Days was the best way to hop into this writing schedule again.

However, trying to figure out a topic was like….. EEK.  (Insert horrified face GIF here!).  Because I have no idea what to write about.   I am not your topically blogger really.  I don’t talk about food or fashion or travel or even family all that much.  I am SO not an expert in much (and I am currently you giving you so many reasons right now NOT to follow me); however, I know what it is like to struggle, to lose hope, and to wonder where God is in the midst of it all.  So that led me to my topic for the next 31 days:

Choosing Faith.

There is the familiar saying to choose joy – to find the joy/happiness in a situation even when you don’t see it.  And I guess to me choosing faith is a bit similar to that.  I view choosing faith as having hope in God even when you don’t see Him.  Even if it doesn’t make sense.  Even if you want to cry, “Why have you left me?”   In the midst of that, even when our heart and head waver, we still choose faith.  We choose to believe He is good and right and true and faithful and ever present in our lives.  We CHOOSE to believe.  Because that is what faith is right?  Getting up and believing that He is still God even if we can’t see Him today.

So that is what my topic will be about the next 31 days.  Finding faith on the days we can’t see it.

See you tomorrow friends.
