“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
I love taking walks with our dogs, not only for exercise but also as my time to connect with God and nature. Recently on my walks I have noticed a lot of painted rocks and sidewalk chalk designs with inspirational sayings or Bible quotes. Having the community come together to encourage one another makes me smile. There is so much negativity in the world and seeing kindness and compassion in even these small ways is refreshing!
As I was walking my dogs last night I noticed a new rock that said: “We walk by faith and not by sight.” This got me thinking. What if I took a new path home? Would I trust God to help me find my way? The Bible is filled with stories about men and women trusting God to help them as they walked through life.
God shows us time and time again that we can trust Him and allow Him to lead us on our journey through life. We may not see the air around us but we know it is there moving the trees, filling our lungs so we can breathe. The same can be said about living by faith, just because we can’t see God doesn’t mean He’s not hard at work.
Perhaps you can walk by faith and not by sight today by taking a new path around your own neighborhood. Maybe you’ll postthis Bible verse on your computer or fridge to help encourage you. You could also write an encouraging note to your neighbor or friend.
