Relentless Faith


This Tree is a picture of relentless faith. It is perched high atop smith rock in Central Oregon, exposed to the elements and far from any water source.  It grew slowly over time twisting and turning, but always reaching toward the sky.  It is a good reminder to me that even the toughest situations, the seemingly unachievable tasks, and the times of struggle are the very things that God uses to shape me into the man he wants me to be.  It is my prayer today that I would pursue Christ with a relentless faith.

Acts 14:21-23

21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said. 23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.


  1. Good word. I pray the same for myself :)

    Is Smith Rock also known as Smith mountain? I was wondering because my grandmother was born & raised on Smith mountain in Oregon...

  2. Teague, smith rock is only known by one name as far as I know
