Faith can be defined as clinging to God’s promises even when they are not easily seen or understood.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)
What carries a person through the tough times? Surely nothing earthly or material can do that; rather, it is a strong belief, a firm conviction, that our God is present to strengthen, guide, and protect us.
