Taking Our First Swim

Faith comes from trusting God despite our lack of understanding. I remember when I took Jude to the pool for the first time; he was terrified of the water. What did I say to him? I said, “Trust me” of course! And though he did it with a look of concern and a death grip on me the whole time he did eventually get into the pool. He didn’t get in because he was sold on the pools safety nor should he have been. Pools can be dangerous for little children. Instead he was sold on me. That’s faith. We Christians often desire to know and then to trust but faith is doing the trust part first. Just like my promise to Jude in the story God’s promise to us is not that we will stay dry in this life but that He will be with us in the water.
