Reason to SMILE #94: FAITH, TRUST AND A LITTLE PIXIE DUST (It seems I’m on a Disney kick!)
No matter what you are facing in life, I believe that faith, trust and even a little bit of pixie dust can get you through it. It’s true! Even Peter Pan knew it!
First, you must have faith. You have to believe in the Creator of the universe, your Creator, who knows every detail of your life down to the last little mole on your little pinky toe. He knows your likes and dislikes, your strengths and weaknesses, your needs and desires. He also knows what’s best for you and He has great plans for you. Not only do you need to believe in who God is but you also have to believe that He keeps His promises and He will never let you down.
Second, you have to trust. You have to act on your faith. Faith is nothing but lovely sentiment if you don’t act on it. Give your situation over to the all powerful, all knowing God in which you believe. Let Him take control. Let Him guide your steps and decisions. Let Him handle it and don’t butt in trying to do things your own way!
Third, sprinkle on a little pixie dust. What? All out? There’s a plentiful supply just waiting for you. Open up God’s Word and read His promises. Spend time meditating on Scripture and talking to God in prayer. The more you spend time with God, the greater your Hope – I mean, supply of pixie dust – will grow.
Walking through a difficult or challenging season? Just remember, all it takes is faith, trust and a little bit of pixie dust to restore that beautiful SMILE….
