The Faith-o-Meter

Have you seen the movie "The Elf"?

Santa is found in Central Park with a broken-down sleigh.

The rocket boosters have fallen off his sleigh and the only way the sleigh can fly is by Christmas Spirit.

The sleigh is able to fly when "Santa's Spirit Meter" registers Christmas Spirit on the ground.

The sleigh hops around for a while through Central Park.

Up. Down. Up. Down.

But, then the people catch on and they start singing.

And, as they sing, their spirit rises and so does the sleigh.

Santa is off on his way.

I've been wondering what it would be like to have a "Faith-o-Meter."

One that measures my faith.

A meter that tells me if I'm trusting in what I can see or what I can't see.

One that measures if my faith is in God Himself or in what I see Him doing in my life.

I know God doesn't need a "Faith-o-Meter."

He sees my heart.

Unfortunately, my faith wouldn't register very high on the "Faith-o-Meter" right now...and, I'm certainly not flying.

It's just one of those times when I have to ask myself, "In whom do I believe and do I believe that He is really able?"

I'm thankful that ..."When I am faithless, that He remains faithful. That He cannot deny Himself." 2 Timothy 2:13

Now, I think I'll go sing a while.
