Are You Gummin’ It?
Do you ever have a day when you think, “If faith were teeth . . . right now I’d be gummin’ it”? I don’t know about you, but I don’t wake up every day looking for new battles and greater challenges. In fact, many mornings I wake up tired, tired of waiting on promises that still haven’t manifested; tired of praying for healing, but seeing only a little; tired of believing for miracles, but only feeling the heat get hotter; tired of looking for change, but seeing sameness; tired of watching people go two steps forward and three steps back; tired of asking for a refreshing rain, but ending up in a puddle of disappointment. When the storms of life wear your faith down to the gums and contrary winds layer grit and grime on your windows, it can change the way you see things. But don’t give up. We are on the threshold of seeing more of the presence and plan of God manifest in our lives than ever before.
