Found this old post in drafts. . . Perfect for where my heart is today.

God creates Faith.

This is not a new concept in the Catholic world, but I always personalized it – how God called me,  versus thinking about it on the larger scale —  How Faith begins.  That Christ offer to us, His offer of friendship and love, actually sparks Faith.  Amazing.

In How to Survive the Fall of Western Civilization by Patti Armstrong says:

Peace be With You

The world is not ours to fix. God made it, he owns it. He’ll let us know if he has something big for us to do.. . Let Jesus have the last word in our lives: “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (John 14:27).

Combine that with  Matthew 9:29 — The Invite.

Then He touched their eyes, saying, “Let it be done according to your faith.

Brilliant. More complex than I can ever understand, yet so simple and clear.
