A Short Note on Faith
September 29, 2015
Nearly 3 years ago, I replaced the carpet in my condo with stained concrete and learned a lot about faith in the process.
- First, I learned in order to move to a new and better state, you must visualize what is possible. Sure, I could have opted to reinstall the same beige carpet I’d had before but what’s the point of staying with the familiar when there’s so many better options? Don’t let your current situation limit your God-given desires and dreams.
- Next, I learned to trust the process and the one whose hands it is in. I knew the project was in the hands of a skilled contractor and that I had to defer to his guidance and allow him to lead the process. So, from ripping up my old carpet, exposing cracked and imperfect concrete, priming the floors, and meticulously painting my floor section by section, I had to resist the urge to question his methods or say how it should be done, and instead let him do what came naturally to him. Trust in Him, submit to His will and allow Him to do the hard work that will ultimately yield great results.
- Finally, I learned that amazing things can happen when you place your faith in the right person. When the work was done, the results of their handiwork far exceeded my expectations and was much more beautiful, durable and functional than anything I could have imagined. “Now unto Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine…”
In conclusion, this experience was a great reminder to me of what faith is all about- visualizing what is possible, trusting the process and the skilled and masterful hands that are doing the work and being ready for amazing results that will no doubt blow your mind!
