Faith

October 28, 2007

Faith is a vital element of life. It is faith that allows us to move forward in this confusing world, even when there are times that we would rather retreat. It is faith that allows us to forgive when we have been hurt, even when there are times when we would rather stay angry. It is faith that allows us to offer love, even when there are times when we would rather give indifference.

As much as we grow in our belief of those things which we cannot see, there is always more to see. Though at times it may be difficult to even muster a word of prayer, let us never cease praying for faith.

    *When you come to the edge of all the light you have known, and are about to step out into darkness, Faith is knowing one of two things will happen; There will be something to stand on, or you will be taught to fly.*

    When I was younger, I believed that seeing is believing, everything had a scientific and logical explanation for it and situations are always either black or white.

    As I grow older, I realise just because one can’t see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Faith is such a powerful tool – wars have been started in the name of faith. It’s because of faith that I have accepted that not everything can be explained and not everyone does the right thing for the right reasons.

    And it is this faith that prevents me from plunging into the deep abyss of depression, hopelessness and despair when things falls apart and the hurt inflicted by some people is almost too much to bear.

    I realise now I am more affected than I thought by the suicide of a friend of a friend. Every time I see someone who is down, I pray that he/she will not lose faith like the deceased and give up hope on life.

    I hope you will keep your faith with you at all times and remember in your darkest hour no matter how alone you feel, there is always someone who cares and a solution to your problems.

    p/s: Faith was my first choice when I was choosing a name for my firstborn.

    Thanks for sharing your personal experiences with me, my friend.
    Your sharing makes this post more meaningful to me.
    With or without faith, I know I’ll always have you to turn to.. Kat. *HUGS*

    The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference. ~Elie Wiesel~

    Btw, I’m sure your Faith will grow up to be a loving, courageous, faithful, wonderful girl. *HUGS*

  14. Lil Says:

    having faith is not always easy at times of difficulty but never stop trying *hugs*

    Lil, in the words of B.C. Forbes, “He who has faith has… an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well – even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.”

    *HUGS*

  16. iamikel Says:

  17. Martin Says:

    I do not believe in god, but I’m able to move forward, to forgive and to love. I do not grow belief into things I cannot see but I agree there’s always infinitely more things to see. Sunshine! 🙂

    Ditto, Martin. 🙂

    Thanks & much appreciation for your 2 cents. 😛
