God’s Egg Basket

Day #11



Good Monday Fellow Live Bravers,

Remember the saying, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket?”

Well, today, I want to share a short excerpt from Dear Abba, by Brennan Manning.

It has to do with faith,

and trust.

As we endeavor to LIVE BRAVE, the topic of trust will always rise to the top.

Do we or don’t we?

Who do we trust?  Who don’t we trust?

Do we trust the one, who by grace saved us all?  Ephesians 2:8-10

Is  your faith one of just belief or true trust?

Would you/ Do you put all your eggs in God’s basket and trust him?

Read on.

If a random sample of one of thousand of American Christians were taken today, the majority would define faith as belief in the existence of God.  In earlier times it did not take faith to believe that God, existed – almost everybody took that for granted.  Rather, faith had to do with one’s relationship to God –  whether one trusted in God.  The difference between faith as “believe in something that may or may not exist” and faith as “trusting in God” is enormous.  The first is a matter of the head, the second a matter of the heart.  The first can leave us unchanged, the second intrinsically brings change.    – The Ragamuffin Gospel

Faith means believing that you are HIS,  and HE is yours.

Faith means believing that you are who he says you are; Beloved, fearfully and wonderfully accepted.

To LIVE BRAVE means to capture the fullness of faith with him, in him…..in You.

To LIVE BRAVE means you hand over your egg basket to God.
