Stronger Faith as a Christian

“A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:12

My husband and I were married on June 20, 1970.  We were three strands – a husband, a wife, and Jesus in a covenant relationship.  Our journey together has had many ups and downs.  If you have visited the book page of this blog and read our story, Beginning Again, you know that our marriage died and was resurrected by the power of  The Third Strand, Jesus Christ.   Having lived this story, I emerged with stronger faith as a Christian.

Do you think we can grow our own faith?  Or do you think God grows it in us, as we cry out to Him during the most difficult and painful periods of our lives and find Him sufficient for our needs?  Can faith grow apart from trials and suffering?
