A Person of Faith

So, I started this new daily devotional and I will attempt to post my thoughts on a daily basis. It just so happens that this devotional is dealing with one of my toughest areas.

I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do no doubt ... you can say to this mountain "Go and throw yourself into the sea," and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. -Mathew 21:21-22 NIV

Here is the thing. I have faith. I believe in the power of God, no doubt. I just have a hard time letting go. I have a hard time allowing God to do His work. I am a jump in a fix it type of person. My instincts are to jump in and fix it. I do not know how to be still and wait for God. This is something that I pray about on a regular basis because there are so many areas in my life that need His healing touch.

So, what do I do? I test myself even in the smallest things. I remind myself everyday to leave it to God. If I say that I am always successful, I would be lying. Slowly, I am learning to wait on Him and to just be still and listen.
