A little piece of faith

I am a bit of a Faith girl and believe in acting in faith. Before we got Rupi I would make a faith statement each month. Every month when my red friend showed up and it was impossible for me to be pregnant that month, I would make a faith choice.

I would go along and buy something for my baby as if I was pregnant. It generally didn't cost very much, like a little book, a baby-gro or toy. But the point was that I was faith-pregnant!

One month was particularly awful as we had received some (more!) bad news from the fertility doctor. I went into a little fancy baby store in Auckland and bought a toy. It cost more than I would normally spend but I just didn't care.

I kept all my "faith choices" in a couple of drawers and every so often would go and sit in front of the drawers and go through them all. This toy became a bit of a symbol of my faith and I would often pick it up and hold it for a while when looking through the drawers.

It was the first toy that came out when Rupi came home and as he has grown he just loves it. I mean really loves it! His little hands reach for it over all the other toys and he looks for it if it's not there. He holds it for hours turning it over and trying to stuff bits of it in his mouth. It's light enough for him to lift it and he holds it above him and looks at it with such intense concentration!

I can't tell you what this does for my heart. My little miracle playing with my little piece of faith. God is so good. He remembers the details and comes through for us in ways we can't even imagine.

I admire your tenaciousness... Faith is hard to me to grasp right now. Thanks for sharing- I need to live as though God will bring about His promises. :)
