31 days of practical faith: an introduction
i am not equipped to write so much as a sentence about faith.
& so, to be honest with you, i'm still not quite sure why i'm taking this leap & writing a whole series about it.
you know, being that i'm not qualified and all.
i didn't go to seminary, or a christian college, or even a christian grade school. i spent half my teen years angry with God and apathetic about faith. and even just last month i was entertaining thoughts of skipping church, because exactly who wants to drag themselves out of bed on any day, much less on a weekend morning?
maybe i lied. maybe i am qualified, and maybe that's why.
because where i grew up, i learned real quick that faith is about more than paying lip service. and if i was going to have a faith that meant more than that, i was going to have to do something about it.
but i'm unqualified, remember? because even though i started exploring what deeper faith looks like when i was in my early teens, i'm still learning. this is going to be a journey we'll take together, these 31 days, a journey about what it means practically to step out in faith.
this month is my heart, my story, my passion, for His name, His sake, His kingdom...
...and i have no idea what i'm doing.
