A Journey to Faith...Barren with a PromiseMany of us have gone through periods in our lives when things we expected to happen did not. At times we may have weathered long unproductive spells that were filled with promise but produced nothing. Coming to faith in life seasons that produce more uncertainty and doubt than clarity and optimism require persistence and confidence in that which appears beyond possibility.The journey to faith and the many paths that lead to its development often leave us bewildered and at times seeking solutions that complicate the journey. I have come to know that the path to blessing is laden with pain, struggles, and doubt...but it is through the unproductive times of life that God creates His greatest work. If you are in a situation as described above, A Journey to Faith... Barren with a Promise will encourage you as you journey on the path toward fulfillment of God's plan for your life. Your faith will grow stronger as you view the story of Abraham and Sarah's journey to faith.
