As your sister in Christ, I encourage you to keep running your race. Keep moving forward. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Stay focused on him, and he will lead and guide you. You do not have to live a life of faith without works!
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted." Hebrews 12:1-3
I am standing with you, and I ask that you stand with me. When we don't know how something will happen, Jesus knows, so choose to place your faith in him. When all hope seems to be lost and all options are off the table, we will believe by faith that God will make a way where there is no way. We won't be people of ineffective faith. Rather, we will match our actions to what we believe, no matter how small our faith starts out. All we need is a mustard seed, and God will grow our faith from that place as we take the first steps forward. Amen!
