Don’t start drifting through life. Don't throw away those values and relationships that you know are important. Don't throw away your relationship with God, or going to church, or being a part of your small group, or reading your Bible. Don't drift. Don't discard. Don't despair.
The ultimate form of faith is thanking God in advance for what you are presently asking him to do. If you thank him after he has answered your prayer, that is not faith but gratitude. When you're at a dead end, choose to thank God that the answer is already on the way.
