Why Elevate through Faith?
The simple answer to the question of “why?” is that God called me to do this. The background to this calling is a bit more complex. I am a logical, practical, and realistic person who needs to know the who, what, when, where, why, and how behind pretty much everything. As I’m sure you can imagine, it is hard for a person like me to have complete faith, because faith leaves a lot unexplained. Although I consider myself a pretty quick learner, learning to have faith was a struggle for me. And if I’m completely honest, there are times that I still struggle. Nevertheless, from a very young age I was a believer in Christ, it all just made sense to me. The part that I had difficulty accepting is how God would do what He promised. As I began to get into the Word more and listen to different teachings, I realized that I wasn’t as strong as a Christian as I thought I was. I had to learn to trust God fully, and lean on Him instead of my own understanding. When I decided to just have faith in God without trying to decode everything, the more I understood and the more my relationship with God was elevated. God gave me this mission, because there are others like me who want to place complete trust in God, but because you cannot put God into a neat and packaged box with an instruction manual, your relationship with God is stuck on the “saving faith” stage. It is your time to elevate your relationship with God and realize the abundance God wants to give you by just having faith and doing His Will.

We are Shaw and Kevin and we welcome you to Elevate through Faith! We are so glad that you stopped by! We are a happily married couple with a blended family of five children, so we are constantly busy. Shaw writes the blog posts and Kevin writes the poetry. You will learn more about us through our posts, but we will not spend much time on us right here. because this blog is all about our Father and everything we write is for His glory. Our primary goal in life is to do God’s Will and spread His message. Our desire is for everyone to come to Christ because that is what God wants. How do we know that God wants everyone to come to Him? The Bible says so, 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance”. What we hope to accomplish with this blog is to bring some people to accepting Jesus Christ into their lives; we hope to help those who are already Christians further their walk with God; and we want every believer to come to discover the prosperous purpose that God has for their lives.
