Faith does not grow by chance but by choice.
As with most things in life ... outcomes, emotions, experiences ... we have a choice. Faith is one of those choices. As one quote states: let your FAITH be bigger than your FEAR. Because you know what? Why not.
Why not trust in something greater than yourself to worry about that which you cannot control? Why not trust that your life is on a path that you may not see but can BELIEVE is the right one?
Why not move forward with hope, putting one foot in front of the other as a good, kind, hard-working human being.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them where your strength lies - Mother Teresa
Some may call faith blind or naive but the truth is - the alternative is not a better option. The alternative to living a life led by trust, faith, hope and gratitude is a life filled with fear, doubt, worry and blame: a life outside of ones control, as a victim, complaining about what goes wrong in ones life versus celebrating what goes right.
I personally could never live that way. That mentality would keep me from being who i am meant to be in this world. Who we are all meant to be - inspiration, light, joy.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement - Helen Kellen
We all have the ability to walk through life with faith, trusting that the path will become clear as long as we keep moving forward. As Dr. King would say, ‘faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.’
FAITH bridges the chasm between where we are and where we want to be.
So why not? Why not take that leap of faith?
Try choosing faith and trust for one week and see how you feel? Leave worry out of the equation for one week and watch how your life responds. Because worry will never CHANGE the outcome ... it is like paying a mortgage for a home you may never own.
Faith doesn’t make things easy, it makes them possible. Try it, friends. Be faith-full for one week and notice what you see, feel, and experience.
Love + Joy,
