I recently read a great book called Miracle on Voodoo Mountain by Megan Boudreaux that another blogger Karen Sargent at http://www.karensargentblog.com recommended and it really made me take a good look at my faith. In this book an amazing young woman named Megan moves to Haiti and has many unbelievable encounters where her faith in Jesus and his awesome power helped her move mountains. When situations seemed impossible she simply believes God would take her through and let his will be done.
This book really got me thinking about my own faith and how faith really can move mountains but very often my faith can’t even move a mole hill. Sometimes I get in this slump of “poor me” and ” life is just hard going to be hard until Jesus takes me home”. This kind of attitude obviously won’t get me far and is not the kind of attitude God wants me to have. Instead of putting my trust and faith in him I worry and try to figure everything out on my own. I start to think what if I use my faith and he fails me. I know it sounds kind of ridiculous as if God can fail us so maybe what I really mean is I might not get what I want and be let down. Beginning to practice real faith, true and honest faith that I know, that I know, that I know God will handle the situation and it will have the best possible outcome BECAUSE it is all in his hands.
If you can relate and need a faith jump start you have got to read this book. Megan’s faith is encouraging and inspiration.
