Last week we had the privilege of having Sherri and PJ Lewis come and speak for us about being confident in trusting God in good or bad situations. They presented something to us called the “Bottom Line,” which tells us that God is in control, God knows what’s best, God loves me, and that we can trust God and His Word. The concept of having this bottom line is to give key points to having a “good, sometimes even greater that great” faith. All of these concepts intermingle with each other, creating a strong faith when we believe every one of them. They are all in balance with each other, and when we start to doubt a concept (like does God loves us or can we trust God), our faith tends to waiver. This was a week of reflection for not only how we view our faith and what that relationship looks like, but also how we can improve on our relationship with the Lord. Using the lessons we were given this past week, we can identify what we start to doubt about God or how God views us.
