“Where is your faith?” Luke 8:25
I am a mom.
Therefore, I have heard these kinds of questions:
“Mom, where is my favorite T-shirt?”
“Hey mom, where did you put my math homework?”
“Ah…mom? Where did my retainer go?”
I am a wife.
Therefore, I have heard questions like this:
Honey, where do you keep the room freshener?
Sweetie, where am I supposed to be at 2:00 again?
Dear, where is that leftover chili?
I am a follower of Jesus.
Therefore, I regularly ask myself:
Where am I being called to serve right now?
Where does God want me to invest my resources?
Where has the time gone?
Sometimes I stop listening to others’ questions and quiet my own soul long enough to hear the voice of my Father.
When I’ve fallen into sin and am hiding from the Lord in the cool of the day: “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9)
When I’m feeling alone and distant from a sense of His sweet presence: “Where can you go from My Spirit?” (Psalm 139:7)
When a storm hits, my boat is filling with water and I’m afraid I will drown: “Where is your faith?” (Luke 8:25)
When my kids and my husband ask me questions, it means they trust me to have an answer.
When the Lord asks me questions, it means I can trust Him to have an answer.
