Welcome to the 21 Self-Improvement Tips 4 Kids series! This is article number 16. You can be up-to-date on everything regarding my Self-Improvement Series by subscribing to our blog (with an adult’s permission.)
Today’s topic is about how having faith. Do you know what faith means? Hebrews 1:14 describes it in a very powerful and simple way. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.“
It’s the faith we have when we want to pass a test or when we want a loved one to get better. Sometimes we go through challenges and problems everyday, and the best way to solve them is by having faith that things will work out for good.
Whenever I am worried or sad about either myself or others, I pray to God for help, strength, and peace. Do your best first and then have faith that God will step in and do what you can’t do.
Martin Luther King, Jr. said that, “Faith is taking the first step when you don’t see the whole staircase.” That means that sometimes we really don’t know what will happen and we don’t have any control over the situation. But when we take the first step, which is acknowledging that we need help and asking for it, then we are on the road to answers and solutions.
Sometimes when we have faith and ask, we do not get answers or solutions to our problems right away. But if we keep having faith all is revealed and solved in God’s timing.
My call to action for you today is to pray for a situation and know that everything will be okay. We have problems, challenges, and difficulties so we can learn, grow, and become better people every day.
One last quote before I finish. Max Lucado said, “Faith… is the belief that God will do what is right.” Whatever happens is meant to happen, and if you pay close attention, everything bad brought something good with it. All you need is faith, hope, and trust.
God bless you all!Be confident!
