Hebrews 11:1 NIV84
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Chuck had reasons to be tempted with doubt but chose to walk by faith. Even with his health was failing he trusted God. He was a man that was calm in the mist of the storm. Chuck walked by Faith. Hebrew chapter 11 teaches us about faith. Chuck lived this passage.
Chuck walked by Faith. Here are the ways he should his faith.

1. Faith is trusting God, even when we cannot see.

It’s hard to see God in sickness, pain, and suffering, but through it all this man trusted God. Most people want to walk my sight, Chuck walked by faith through the valley. Look at the examples in these Scripture.
Hebrews 11:7–13 NIV84
By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. By faith Abraham, even though he was past age—and Sarah herself was barren—was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore. All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.
Heb. 11:7-

2. Faith is trusting God, even when it does not make sense.

I do not understand why Chuck health declined and spent 10 years in chipley rehab. There are many things in life we do not understand. Baby’s die, children go to school and never come home, good people get sick and die and bad people sometimes live long lives. But even though some things in Chuck’s life did not make sense the still trusted God my faith.
Hebrews 11:17–19 NIV84
By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had received the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death.
Heb. 11:17-

3. Faith is trusting God, even when we suffer.

Hebrews 11:32–40 NIV84
And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the prophets, who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. Women received back their dead, raised to life again. Others were tortured and refused to be released, so that they might gain a better resurrection. Some faced jeers and flogging, while still others were chained and put in prison. They were stoned; they were sawed in two; they were put to death by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground. These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
Heb. 11:32-4
