Do you ever find yourself worried, doubting, or just feeling hopeless? Even if it isn't for a long period of time we all have been there. Sometimes it's hard to get out of a rut (when you find yourself in one). I know that was the case for me for a season of my life, I found myself in a state of blah. 

Thank God that I know His word, I trust His promises, and I am reminded that "Faith comes by hearing". I believe faith in God is the cure all for any season of life. My faith has been with me through some of my darkest days, even before I knew what faith really was. 

What I also learned is that what and who I listen to matters! My faith has grew from LISTENING! It has been a process, I haven't always listening to the right things or the right people but I am learning. 

So what are you listening to? Are you being still enough to hear? Really ask yourself and guard your heart and ears accordingly. -Ashli B. 

Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

I like the message translation:

Romans 10:17 The point is, Before you trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ's Word is preached, there's nothing to listen to.

“The gospel is given, not only to be known and believed, but to be obeyed. It is not a system of notions, but a rule of practice. The beginning, progress, and strength of faith is by hearing. But it is only hearing the word, as the word of God that will strengthen faith.” -Matthew Henry
