My child, living by faith is not the easy life. Living by faith includes tests and trials. It requires you to trust, let go of control and believe. Not living by faith includes tests and trials too. But when you live by faith you experience My peace in the midst of your trials. You have a knowing, deep down that I am in control and I will work all things together for good. Fear cannot reside where faith is. To live in fear is just as much of a choice as to live in faith, but you have two radically different outcomes. Anxiety and fear or peace and joy. Your choice.
