What is important in your faith?

27 Aug

Faith.  Hope. Dreams. Wishes. Love. Beliefs.

All the above…and more perhaps.  Faith is hard to put into a definition…into a category…into a shape or mold.  Faith is that inside of us, that guides our actions, our goals, our plans, our social behaviors…It is the “bigger than life” part…the “all or nothing” part..the “to the stars and back” part.

There is nothing in faith to draw, write down, cook, develop, sing, etc.  Yet, it takes faith…to do all those things.  Faith that the pencil will do what you move it to do…faith that the food will become what you expect it to after being cooked…faith that you can invent, form, etc…and it will work….faith that your mouth and throat (etc.) will issue melodies.  There is something, in everything, unknown and taken for granted. That is faith.

To me, it is faith in all things back to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.  That is my choice and my faith.  That is what is important to my faith.

You? Faith is something you must determine for yourself.  We have all been given free will to choose.  Faith is one thing no one can predetermine for you…no one can force on you…no one can even know what you mean by it….Faith is yours.

I beg you, caution you, do not assume a faith for yourself lightly.  Expect to study, delve into, experience with, all that you consider.  I have.  I chose Christianity, not lightly, not capriciously….but after much study and much earnest thought.

My faith brings joy to my life; it lifts my very soul to the stars.  My faith gives me a past, a present and a future that I cherish. My faith gives me my strength, my purpose, my love, my desires, my….everything.

I wish all these for you.  I pray that you find your faith.  I hope your soul reaches the stars.

    Usually humans inherit faith but mature people follow it on the basis of study experience and their firm trust on this life line which always come first in time of troubles and disaster.

    Your faith can be your inherent belief or it can be your experience of life earn through learned and practical way of living.
    We get first lesson of faith from our surroundings and if we have good equation with people living around as relationships we are bound towards that faith which is unintentionally penetrated in our soul and remain there till we die. but troubles and mishaps or bad relationship shatter our image of faith and we start deviating toward new center or might be deviated from our basics of brought up.
    Here timely or long time experience gives innovation to our beliefs and faith and we would come to new concepts of prophecy after dipping into vicissitude of life and seeing the quality of social life we will have in our changed life.
