on having faith

this is a tough subject for me.  i struggle sometimes with having faith, and trusting that God truly does have a unique plan for each and every one of us.  it's not an easy thing to do.  all of us go through tough times in our lives where we struggle or lose loved ones, but all of these tough situations are all part of God's plan.  we must trust that he has something bigger and better in store for us.  today i want to share a story with you all, that has really touched my heart. 

you may remember a post a couple of weeks ago about a baby girl named finley who was fighting for her life.  finley was born with little to no heartbeat and very little brain activity.

finley was such a fighter, and she touched the hearts of thousands of people.  on friday august 16th, finley went to be with the lord.  after a 21 day fight for her life.  i never met this precious baby girl, but for some reason her story touched my heart in so many ways.  i truly felt like God called me to spread the word for baby finley, and to get as many prayer warriors as i could find, and that's just what i did.
finley's parents, noelle and tim, have inspired me so much!  the amount of faith that they have is beyond amazing.  they knew that their daughter would be a world changer, and she definitely was.  even though they were hurting for their daughter, they still had faith that this was all part of a plan.
this story of finley and her amazing parents has really inspired me to have more faith in God.  to understand that his plans are far better than i could ever imagine for myself.

i ask each and every one of you to pray for noelle and tim oblander.  pray for peace and comfort.
thank you to all of you who prayed with me and helped to spread the word for baby finley.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.
1 corinthians 16: 13
