Blessing of Faith

Romans 12:3 For by the grace given me I say to everyone of you: Do not think of yourself more highly that you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgement, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

I've started writing down verses that I want to commit to memory on a large dry erase board. The verse quoted above is the last one on the board, perfectly positioned so that I caught the words "God has given you" as I got up from my computer to feed my son Gideon. God has given you. I was suddenly caught, holding a child that I love so much, a gift from God, surrounded by blessings. I read the rest of the verse and further realized that even my faith in the source of my blessings comes from the Father.

66. Thank you Lord for my faith. For the renewal you offer of my faith in the evidence of your creation and in the inspiration of your word. Thank you for the reminder of your gift this day.
