Faith in the everyday painful life
I would be a lying hypocrite to even suggest that because I have faith I can walk in the rain and yet act as if I'm experiencing pure sunshine. Faith is not living in denial. Faith is not ignoring the pain. Additionally, simply having faith does not mean a free pass from pain and anguish.
The New American Standard Bible says this of faith: " Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for (and) the conviction of things not seen" Heb 11:1
Faith is the assurance that God cares about the rain. Cares about me soaking wet. Furthermore his character tells me he doesn't expect a fake smile as I shiver from the cold and bitter wind. Faith is being held through unspeakable pain and anguish and being rocked through the tears until I fall sleep. And trusting that one day these months will be but a memory as I dance with him in glory.
