Today's post was inspired by the email I got from my "Daily cup of Inspiration" from the lovelies over at Internet Cafe Devotions. The quote and verse used reminded me of the term I use "Fortune Cookie Faith."
I use the term "Fortune Cookie Faith" because I know that for some, it is much easier to just read about faith than practice it, some may not know how to talk about faith, simply do not want to talk about faith or quite honestly, have an easier time reading, believing and quoting something from a fortune cookie, than from a bible.
It is okay by me..because I believe that I am here as one of God's creative crash test dummies to translate for you! (LUCKY YOU!)
Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will have a joy in overcoming obstacles—a delight in climbing rugged paths which you would perhaps never know if you did not sometimes slip backward, if the road were always smooth and pleasant. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. —Helen Keller
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 NIV
