The Faith Train

(okay, my black background totally throws this off, but you get the point :))

I am SO having a Faith Train kind of day. I would totally prefer to disconnect my "feelings caboose" today and just move on (her name is Peace Baby, haha ~ which, by the way, is one cosmic joke because she is ANYTHING but peaceful!). I am SO glad someone told me about The Faith Train way back when. Thank you Campus Crusade for Christ! You keep me sane at moments like this. They are doing such a great job reaching the lost for Jesus.

Here is as an excerpt from their website explaining the Faith Train:

"Do Not Depend on Feelings

 The promise of God's Word, the Bible - not our feelings - is our authority. The Christian lives by faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God Himself and His Word. This train diagram illustrates the relationship among fact (God and His Word), faith (our trust in God and His Word), and feeling (the result of our faith and obedience) (John 14:21).

The train will run with or without a caboose. However, it would be useless to attempt to pull the train by the caboose. In the same way, as Christians we do not depend on feelings or emotions, but we place our faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God and the promises of His Word."

The train will run with or without a caboose. Amen and thank you, Lord, for that!
