November 18, 2018 Faith Tested
Can we trust God when it means letting go of something or someone we love? Sometimes the letting go is a life transition, like letting our kids go off to school or to marry. Other times it includes pain from divorce or death. Sometimes we are asked to let go of a job we love, or a ministry we lead, or dollars we treasure. Abraham’s faith was tested in the sacrifice of his son Isaac. Faith trusts God that out of loss and death comes resurrection and new life. Where might God be testing your faith by asking you to live with open hands?
