What is the definition of Faith?

Here are some definitions from Websters
1. Belief and trust in and loyalty to God
2. Firm belief in something for which there is no proof
3. Complete Trust.
Lets look at the last one, Complete Trust. Wow! How convicting. Lets think of a verse for a minute. The one that came to mind as I was reading the definitions was "For without FAITH it is impossible to please God." So lets read it this way "For without Complete Trust, it is impossible to please God." You have no idea how many times I have tossed between thoughts of more children, or no more children. I realized that so much of my battle was brought on by what everyone else would say such as " Well yes, God knows what he is doing, but... He did give you a brain!" My question is when does FAITH or Complete trust change? My God knows what I can handle, and where is it said to be stupid to have this Faith. Is it now again a Firm Belief in something of which you have no proof? I have firmly come to the conclusion that yes my body has been through a lot, yes I am and should be happy with the Child the Lord has given me to raise, happy that I have a wonderful husband...and yes I am even happy that the Lord gave me 4 opportunities to carry His children for such a time as this. 4 Opportunities to see Christ in a new and wonderful way. Opportunities of growth in my walk with Christ. I would not bring any of them back. I would have done nothing different. And you know, it takes Faith to declare this in such a public way, but I will continue to have faith that God knows what he is doing period. I will trust Him with every part of my future. What has given me this assurance? FAITH. Faith that God knows what He is doing, knows what is best for me. Knows what is best for all of us.
To my dear friend who is struggling with her loss...I am praying for you and I hope that all that the Lord has done in my heart ,He will use to encourage yours. Please , if you need anything just email!
May I encourage you to seek the Lord for the wisdom you need. Look to His word, His promises. Block out the world and well meaning friends and look only to Him and his word. You will be Blessed beyond measure , with joy unspeakable and full of glory!

Wow it really has been a long time!

Between post that is. We have been so busy, and I have a ton of pics I would love to share with you. A couple weeks ago we took the Juniors (3rd-6th grade) kids to Camp in Michigan. It was such a blast. We have always enjoyed helping our youth pastor out by taking them. There was a total of 15 in all. The speaker was great and the Lord worked in all of their lives.
Then last week with 3 hours notice I took my Granny to my great uncles funeral in Arkansas. Which was a very fast trip.
This week we are up in Grand Haven, Mich. a dear couple from church invited us to spend time up here with them at their condo. It has been such and encouragement and blessing to spend this week with them. Bella has taken her first boat ride... she LOVED it... May I add that my camera lcd screen has gone out, so I have no idea if the pictures we took are going to be any good. Talk about going back to the stone age...LOL!
Well that is our update... what has been going on with you?
Well there is the update on us
