Faith Test

After committing my need to God, if I can come away with no sadness, pain or anxiety in my heart, I have prayed the prayer of faith. If I pray and then still carry my burden, I know that my faith was not in practice. ~slight paraphrase from Streams in the Desert

(allowed to stand)

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. ~Romans 10:17


  1. I have been praying this morning and I feel so much better. Your post was so helpful to me ths day. ......Have the most beautiful of Sunday's....Mary

  2. What a lovely post, Vee! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Love the post....

  4. Thanks Vee, your quote from Streams in the Desert was just for me today. My prayers must have been ones of faith as I am not sad or anxious about the situation. I am resting in peace. Thanks for the heart lift! Have restful Sunday!

  5. I have Streams in the Desert too and like it a lot.

  6. Hi Question I was in a 'spiritual group/family' for 10 years ,then upon becoming seriously ill I was abandoned?! I have never been so isolated in my life?! I lost Everything!?

  7. Wish that I knew your name, Couture de Papier as it seems so impersonal to call you by your blog name (your blog is a very beautiful one, by the way). I've been circling around your comment for a while now wondering how best to respond. I'm not even sure that you asked a question, but this is my response for what precious little it is worth. We can always trust people to be human; we can always trust the Lord to provide. That's all I know. I am so sorry that you experienced such loss in the middle of being very ill. It certainly doesn't seem fair or right. How have you been coming to terms with it?

  8. If that picture doesn't renew your faith, no one stands a chance...a lovely tribute to a loving GOD...thanks for the reminder my dear Vee...

  9. Beautiful! Have a blessed Sunday,

  10. I am enjoying your post even days later :). The yellow flowers have brought sunshine to my day :)


If comments disappear, please don't fret. A simple "hi" will do. The platform surely needs some maintenance.
