Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13
Today in my evangelism class we had to present a project that we had been working on. The project was to take a box (I got a small wood one from Michaels Craft Store) and decorate and fill it with idea, people, and events that have impacted our faith. We then came in to class today to present them and what they mean to me. However, when I got to class the first activity surprised me. We were assigned a partner and we were told to just give our box to them for them to…inspect. Wow frightening. I brought this in to share with the class and before I could do so I was told to give my box to someone else without sharing the emotional and spiritual stories that went with it. Now my box was not all that I wanted it be because I couldn’t find a new color cartridge for my printer when I was printing pictures. However, I was very pleased at the job I did and to me it mattered more about the label rocks inside that really represented me were the personal part. Anyway the person was supposed to ask us questions about our faith box to try and figure out what it was all about and what our faith was built around.
Faith is often a tough subject to understand, but we all have it and it was formed by someone or some event that we went on. I often think of the development of my faith as continuing and ongoing. I have had many supporters and many events that have impacted me. Also many places with many other people who have helped me develop my faith. I know what a time of little faith feels like and looking back on it it was a time in my life where I felt unfulfilled and searching for more all the time. As I live in faith I find that I am not looking to be filled, but I am continually being filled by the Holy Spirit as I live with faith.
I just want to thank everyone in my life who has helped develop my faith and pushed me to be the person I am today.
