What is life without Faith?

It’s not life. If I have no faith or hope for the future, then I might as well find a nice dark corner in which to keel over and die. What is the point of living if there is no hope for the future? I know life can pull you down in the mud and it feels as if you’re sinking deeper and deeper. But even in the bleakest of moments God is still working on your behalf. I have had times in my life that were pretty gray. I was in pain in my physical body as well as my soul. I could hardly gather the strength to walk. I needed God to move in my life desperately, I cried to Him nearly every night. The only thing that kept me going imagewas my faith that God was going to deliver me. And that this extremely difficult time was for a purpose. I knew God was building me to be a stronger and more faithful person. I had to keep believing that or let the world bring me to my knees. That doesn’t mean that I just sat back and waited for things to change. I made a conscious effort to change my circumstances. And after I did all that I could do in my human power, I let God take care of the rest in His supernatural power. I admit there were moments where I wasn’t 100% positive that God would see me through it. But I remember His word, Psalm 38:2 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” God wants us have the best possible lives. Lives full of purpose and promise, not full of depression and bitterness. Jesus did not die on a cross so we could just muddle through life while slowly dying on the inside. Why not put your faith in Him? What is the alternative? The only other option is waiting for death.
