Having Faith in Christ

Sunday was testimony meeting at church. I love hearing people tell about their blessings and how faith in Jesus Christ had enriched their lives. I was deeply touched by our dear friend Ewan Mitton's testimony. She told about how she rallied her family to have faith that their tiny great grandchild would be healed of a serious heart defect that required intricate surgery. She said, "I told the family that we needed to trust the healing power of Jesus Christ, which means we pray with real intent, not doubting, but visualizing the blessing being fulfilled." Her testimony was powerful. And the faith of their family was realized and the baby made it through the surgery and is thriving against all the odds.


It reminded me of my own grandmother, Pearl Saunders. She was a woman with remarkable faith who taught us to trust the Lord. She experienced miracles in her life from exercising complete faith in Jesus Christ. It was because of her that years ago I memorized the scripture from Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths." It has become my motto.
