Having Faith


Definition of Faith:

1. Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

2. Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

At least this is the definition I found tonight when looking it up online.


So when people talk about "having" faith, like it's something palpable, it gets me thinking. And I think and think about how to "have" it or really feel it. I mean, that is what it is....feeling.....having trust and confidence in someone or something would really be an internal feeling.

I hope I haven't lost you, stay with me.....I'm not trying to get all philosophical on you. Lord knows, I am as right brained as them come....or maybe that's left:) Anyways, I am very factual, I love proof and reassurance that point A will lead to point B.

So like others, I have some issues with faith in general. Not really faith in God but faith that I am not in control all the time. I mean, what if I am more than I think...then if I don't drive this bus for even a second...well let's just say we could be off in the ditch in no time. Right?

But when I really start to see my faith flame flickering and dimming, it seems that's when I get these thoughts like:

"It will all work out, all this fretting for nothing. You are making wrinkles in your forehead and you haven't even given it a chance to not work."

Let's just say work is a little distressing lately, wedding plans are a little sensitive, and my dogs are not behaving.

So even though none of this sounds very faith oriented at the first read, the foundation is the same. Everything will work out, everything will be fine, and I am thankful for so much...I'm thankful to have the stresses I have.

So tonight I am trying to put some kerosene on my faith flame, relax and get a good nights sleep....everything happens as it should and in the right time.

So go have some faith:)

  1. Thank you for this post. I think I was meant to read this today. Right now, before I go to work (in 25 minutes). I tell myself all the time that it will all work out...just the way it is supposed to. Things will be fine. I will emerge from this a much stronger person. I am learning some kind of life lesson.
    And then other times like today I am overwhelmed and feel that no matter what happens, I am trying to control something that I can't control. I am really trying to hold onto faith in myself and others. Faith in the economy. Faith in my family. Faith in myself and my business and my customers.
    I am scared that as you say, we really have no control. So I guess we just breathe. And smile. And try to put one foot in front of the other. And I have to go to work now and I wish you the best. Nicki
