Faith

Faith is the assurance of what we have not yet seen. It shapes our world-view and leads us to answers for all of life's questions. It gives us purpose and hope. It sheds light on the proper way to conduct our lives and gives us a rich heritage with many mentors to help when we have questions and need advice.

Below is my artsy-fartsy Faith Project. Feel free to make one of your own if you like the idea (the photos were ones that I took and edited in Picnik):

F-edit-s

First things first.

1. God - personal spiritual growth
2. Spouse - edification and relationship of man and wife
3. Children - nurture and train godly offspring
4. Work - strive to do our best at all our given tasks
5. Others - service, hospitality, and fellowship

A-edit-s

Aspire to excel for God's glory.


So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:31

My 4 Pillars:
Religion (based on relationship)
Honor
Discipline
Excellence

I2-edit-s

Instruct your children in righteousness. Imitate Christ to lead by example.

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. ~ Proverbs 31:26

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

All your sons will be taught by the LORD, and great will be your children's peace. ~ Isaiah 54:13

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. ~ Deuteronomy 6:4-9

T-edit-s

Treasure the moment.

I tried to teach my child with books,
He gave me only puzzled looks.
I tried to teach my child with words -
They often passed him by, unheard.
Despairingly, I turned aside,
'How shall I teach this child?' I cried!
Into my hand he put the key -
'Come', he said, 'and play with me.'

~ Unknown

Write your plans in pencil... and give god the eraser.

~ Unknown

It seems essential, in relationships and all tasks, that we concentrate only on what is most significant and important.

~ Søren Aaby Kierkegaard

H4-edit-s

Happiness is a choice, not a feeling.

"Love is nothing unless you give it away."

~ Sunday School song

Love - the feeling - is a fruit of love, the verb.

~ Stephen Covey
