For we live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
Our Live by Faith Necklace comes to you in handcrafted sterling silver and measures approximately 16 inches in length. If you prefer a longer length you can select 18 or 20 inches for a small additional fee. This silver faith necklace has a small oval pendant tag measuring approximately 3/4 inches long (including the ring) and 1/4 inches wide. In the center of the tag is the hand engraved word Faith. It's so important to live by faith because without it we lose hope.
I remember going through a particularly difficult time in my life and I wore a silver faith necklace to encourage me in what seemed like the longest season. As I was getting dressed one morning I went to pick up the necklace from my dresser grabbing the chain on one end and noticed it wasn't fastened which sent the pendant sliding free of the chain. Before I could catch the pendant, it slipped off the chain and onto the floor somewhere out of sight. I said aloud, "I've lost my faith" and the Holy Spirit in that still small voice from within me replied "Yes, yes you have". That got my attention. I knew that the length of the difficult season had begun to test my endurance and I started to question if it would ever end. The truth was, I questioned if God remembered I was going through it. I wondered if I was alone in this thing. I never verbalized those thoughts but they hung around long enough to become doubts to a good outcome which is the opposite of living by faith. But that morning when the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, it brought revelation and conviction and I sank to my knees.
There's no better place to find your faith again than on your knees! It's a position of surrender and that's what I needed to do. Feeling around beneath my dresser with a lump in my throat, I stretched my hand out and just felt my way to the pendant. Finding it and drawing it up to my chain to reattach while still on my knees, I committed to not drop out and not lose faith no matter how long this season was going to last. The season didn't end that day, in fact, it was a few years before it was over, but that day I recommitted to holding onto faith and trust in God knowing He would see me through. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that God is for us and although we cannot see the end of the season, He's promised to never leave us or forsake us. We can live by faith!

Part of the appeal of handcrafted sterling silver jewelry includes slight variations and irregularities in silversmith work. These variations are not to be considered defects, but rather the silversmiths signature. No two are exactly alike.
