Faith In Action
"Where does faith come from? God has allotted to each a measure of faith." Romans 12:3
How does one increase their faith?
Faith is multiplied by acts of faith.
As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. (James 2:26) God wants you to apply his gift of faith to your hopes and dreams. Faith is part of the creative process. It motivates us to keep taking inspired action on the invisible until it becomes visible.
The Chinese Bamboo Tree, for example, requires nurturing through sunshine, water, and soil. After one year of nurturing this tree, there are no visible signs of growth. After 2,3 and four years nothing? Finally, in the 5th year something miraculous happens, The Bamboo Tree grows 80 feet tall in just six weeks. This tree is like your hopes, dreams, and your business.
In 2014 I had a desire to create a business based on my passions. I went back to school and took many business and personal growth courses. In 2017 I introduced my community to the life enrichment program. It started with one facility, and now Bodies in Motion is in the Imperial Beach library, in over 8 assisted living facilities, integrated into hospitals, corporations, speaker, leadership events and retreats which all get their audiences moving. 50% of new companies shut their doors by or before their fifth year in business. For us, this is just the beginning.
There is a powerful quote by our 26th President Theodore Roosevelt that paints an impressive picture of faith in action.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually attempt to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
1. Where in your life do you need to step into the ring so you can put your faith into action?
