Crazy Faith

There was a time when, my family, friends, and neighbors would have thought that “Crazy Faith” would be a perfect title for my autobiography! :)

I know that this is true, because once, when I was in the final months of my pregnancy, (you know, the pregnancy that I prayed 10 years for), I overheard my husband talking to a neighbor, saying; “We all thought that Faith was losing her mind!… While she was struggling with her health and praying for another baby, her mother and sister would call and say, “We’re really concerned about Faith..”  They thought that I was going crazy!!! He had never told me this before, so when I heard it, I laughed, and said, “That’s OK… They thought that Noah was crazy too, but it sure did rain didn’t it? So, I’m in good company!”

It all began 15 years earlier, when I read Luke 8:48,  Daughter, your faith has made you whole…”, and from that moment on,  there was no turning back for me… I believed it.

Of course, I myself, don’t think it’s “crazy”, but lots of people might consider it crazy to believe for something that seems impossible. Reading those words as a young 24-year-old, and believing that God had spoken to my heart, “fueled” me to move forward in faith, convinced and certain, that God would bless me, despite my physical circumstances.

Is there something that you would like for God to do for you, but you think that it’s impossible, or not important enough, or too big, to ask for?..  Ephesians 3:20 says that God is “…able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,..”  The power at work in us includes our faith!  Many times when Jesus healed someone, he said, “according to your faith be it unto you”, or “your faith has made you whole.”

Even if it makes you look “crazy” to those around you, or, if it’s just a secret request that you haven’t mentioned to anyone else, ask God what you will, and believe with “crazy” or unexplainable faith that, “with God… nothing is impossible.”

Smiles and Blessings,

  1. Faith, thank you so much for this encouragement. Let’s continue to believe that God is God according to Ephesians 3:20 and that He continues to work even when we can’t see it — according to verse 21, for His glory. That’s the goal.

  2. Oh I am jumping up and down, dancing and waving my hands–THIS is a Great Story, YES and AMEN!!! How you have fired me up yet again–for when we get hold of what Jesus says, and we elect to BELIEVE HIM, there truly is NO turning back. Wow, I’m flying! Gonna email this to a sis who will also be dancing with “crazy faith”! God bless you so BIG–love, sis Caddo

  3. Thank you so much for this. God really used this to speak to me. We are now TTC, and it feels impossible sometimes. I truly believe God has spoken to my heart, but it looks so discouraging sometimes, when it is month after month. But thank you for speaking hope back into my heart! :) Looking forward to following you here!

  4. Your post is great! His word says, Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.

    Your post reads like you are there. Glory to God for your revelation.

  5. I can relate to your story in this piece. I have had a life changing event that medically professionals thought I wouldn’t live through. But, God saved and blessed me with a faith and peace that surpasses all understanding. I am grateful for his love and joy. Great post.

  6. Thanks Kate! It’s nice to meet you, and I’m happy that you’ve been encouraged here. I pray that the LORD will continue to bless you and strengthen you.
    Smiles and Blessings!
    Faith :)
