Having faith and using faith in the way God would like us to is such an amazing and powerful tool. However, life can get on top of us at times, and it can be hard to keep a constant grasp of our faith.
This is absolutely why we need to continuously grow in our faith on a day-to-day basis. We do this by spending good quality time with Jesus through prayer. It should be the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night, plus numerous times throughout the day, including him in the high and the low, the big and the small.
It feels much easier to cry out in prayer for help when things aren’t going so well, but do we praise Him enough when things are going right? I cycle to work everyday and there is a shower facility for staff, but there is only a small number of showers to go round. I’m always truly grateful and it puts a smile on my face when there is a shower waiting for me in the morning.
'Dear heavenly father, thank you for the good times and equally thank you for the times when things aren’t going so well, because these are the times when I reflect more and learn to grow wiser and stronger in my faith to you. Amen'
