"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Finger Tip Faith

Ever feel like you are holding on for dear life by your finger tips? Perhaps you have seen the poster of a cat barely hanging onto the branch by its claws. Those images are on my mind today.

All the medical test results are back now and everything was negative. This is a good thing, but yet, there still is no answer to why I have been feeling (physically) the way that I have. So the test that still remains is to continue to trust, despite the circumstances and situation.

Trust even when it may feel that I am dangling over a precipice and have little strength to continue to grasp the branch. But I guess it is at those times that our Heavenly Father is undergirding us.

John 15:4-6 says, "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned." So today I cling to the fact that even though I can not see any fruit for this situation, I know that as I continue to rely upon the Lord, and remain in Him, at some point God will use it to bear fruit in my life.

He is already bearing 'fruit' by growing more trust in you and by you clinging that much more to Him. Learning to rely totally upon Him is a big fruit. Trusting and not totally understanding is a fruit.

Take comfort in His arms as you are a beloved daughter of the King!
