inside out

the lord has many plans for each one of our lives as his children we never really know what they are or what they will bring. lately my life as gone from crazy to hard. the other day i was reading in my bible in Matthew 21-28 about the faith of the Canaanite woman and how her faith saved her daughter. this passage made me think. can our faith my faith as a daughter of the king be strong enough to save my loved ones. can my faith reach the lost that i love and save them. this women faith saved her daughter so why can't my faith save my love one. but then i realized that it has to be through my loved one faith that they are saved not through my own. this made my hart hurt to think of love ones who are lost. but then i remembered that my faith can not save them but i can fight for them through praying for them. lately i have also been thinking about forgiveness and how i will never ever have the change to really share how i really felt in that time with that loved one. so brothers sisters if you have not forgiving some one talk it out with the lord pray through it , if you have something you want to tell some tell them do not Waite because you will never really know if your will have that chance. because after all we do not live for us but for the lord. and even throw times get hard and our faith is week and we may find our self's like job asking why or like Johna running the lord is still lord and we need to let him be . he will never leave us or forsake us.
The Faith of a Canaanite Woman 21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”

23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”

24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.
