My husband holds the iphone in his hand and reads ancient words still alive today. I hold my hand up for him to pause. “Wait,” I say, “Read that part again.” I think in my non-morning person fogginess I must have heard it wrong.

He repeats, “Faith is confidence….” {Heb. 11:1}

Huh.

I heard right after all.

But those words made me wonder what I hadn’t been hearing at all, for all my life.

Of course faith is the secret of confidence.

Why had I never made the connection before?

I tend to think of faith as external while confidence comes from within.

But isn’t that where faith really comes from too? From our hearts and the One who dwells within them…

Will you read the rest with me on (in)courage?

    Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

    My prayer; Lord, may we always be quick to praise slow to criticize.
