One of the scriptures lately that I have been reflecting on is Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
When I have hard days, at the end of my strength, not sure of what the future holds I remember, “I live by faith in the Son of God.” What a relief! It’s not faith in my ability, my family, my friends, my past accomplishments, or my determination. It’s so freeing to know that I can die to all those exhausting and useless ideas and hold on to the one simple truth: it’s about putting my faith in the only true place that counts—in the Son of God.
