This week’s topic: Faith In God

A close friend was the victim of a home invasion last year while her husband was at work and she was in the house with her 2-year-old. The intruder broke in through a downstairs window, rummaged through a few things on the first floor then walked upstairs to lock eyes with my friend and her daughter who calmly asked, “Mommy, who is that?”

It was only about 7 feet of space that separated my friend from a complete stranger in her own home. After a quick but intense mutual stare, the intruder scurried back down the stairs and out the front door. I got word of what happened and took action right away. Sad to say I jumped right into the arms of fear.

“You’ve gotta move to a new neighborhood. Houses are for sale in my subdivision…I’ll start making calls…”

I thought I was helping them, but I was only parading my lack of faith. Yes I acknowledged God’s grace. The situation could have been much worse. The intruder didn’t get physical or violent; instead, he fled.

But because my faith was a no-show, I couldn’t inspire faith in my friend. In an instant without flinching, I adamantly suggested they uproot the family and essentially “run” because the intruder could return to finish business.
