Faith has been a hard lesson for me to learn. I am sure it is difficult for most people to achieve. I think as long as you learn to have faith, real faith, then you have accomplished allot in your time here on the planet.
What is faith? Real faith? Unwavering faith?
Is it when you need to pay a bill and don’t have the money but you know the money will come from somewhere?
Is it the sale you need to make to get paid your commission fees and know with unwavering faith that the sale will come to you?
Is it when you don’t know what to do and you pray to God for help and know that help is on the way?
Or the hope that an ill loved one will recover
I think that it is all of these things require some degree of faith.
Here are a few scriptures from the Bible that explain the meaning of Faith
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
2 Corinthians 5:7
We live by faith, not by sight
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
It is difficult to have faith in something that you cannot see.
I was very fortunate that a wise friend of mine taught me about Faith. I must have been in my late twenties at the time. She would say if you have faith in God, (Spirit/your higher power) then things in life will always work out to your benefit. “You just have to have faith that God will take care of it”
Well, I started to practice it. Little things at first and then larger goals, needs that required faith and an act of God.
I figured out that as long as I worked hard, was honest and kept my integrity, God would take care of the rest. But I had to keep the faith.
I was a single mom, so there were quite a few times where I needed things to go my way to take care of myself and my two children. It always has.
There were times when I would start to waiver, just like anyone else. I am human you know.
Lucky for me, my friend had sent me a statue about twenty-five years ago now. A small porcelain statue of a young girl with blond hair and a green apron on. I still have her to this day she simply reads <strong>” Faith Works.” It sits in my home to remind me that no matter what “Faith Works”.
And she’s right. Through all of lifes twists and turns, I have remained Faithfull.
So grab a sticky note, your note pad, or buy a frame and write the words “Faith Works”
Make sure your sign is visible for you to see every day, just as a reminder, when things looks glum don’t give up! “Faith Works”.
This will be one of the most benefifiall things that you have ever done for yourself.
