Faith Friday's

A life filled with fear has little room left for faith.

One of my favorite stories is found in Luke 7:36-50, where the sinful woman who took huge steps of faith when she walked up to Jesus in a room full of Pharisees and anointed His feet with tears and perfume. She wasn't afraid of what it would cost her, although it was a big risk and a huge sacrifice.

She knew what she hoped for and was uncertain of what she could not see. Her faith saved her with each step she took toward Jesus.

I used to live a life filled with fear. Fear of death, fear of a relative, fear of the phone ringing, fear of the future. It was miserable.

It wasn't until God made His way back into my heart and I professed my faith that things got better.

What steps are you taking towards Jesus?
