I passed a church the other day that had a simple but powerful message on its sign outside. The message simply said, "Faith sees things that are out of sight."
Out of sight perhaps, but never out of reach.
Voltaire said that "faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe." When you think about it, isnt that what faith is all about? Believing and trusting in those things you cannot see? And its this believing in yourself and your God given abilities that ultimately determines how far you go in life. Faith holds the key.
Your faith is your constant companion, there at your side day in and day out. Regardless of what you believe in or for that matter, do not believe in, true faith is believing in something. And it is that faith in something that gives your life meaning and a sense of purpose. Faith gives you hope and without hope, you are nothing more than a rudderless ship lost at sea.
Sometimes we fail to recognize just how large a part faith plays in our daily lives. How many times has faith kept us from giving up or giving in? Faith, or the lack of faith, shapes our lives.
We all know how tough it is to keep the faith when we have been knocked to our knees or dealt a staggering setback. Just when we need it the most, sometimes our faith seems to be slipping away. President Franklin D. Roosevelt reminded us of the importance of keeping the faith when he said, "when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."
Sometimes faith is simply a matter of having the strength to hang on when everyone else has let go.
People with the greatest amount of faith always believe that no matter how difficult and challenging things may seem at the moment, everything is going to turn out OK. Their faith, an unshakable belief system that they hold deep down in their hearts and their souls, gives them something to hold on to when they need it the most.
Your faith can provide a shining beacon of hope that will guide you through lifes most trying times. Your unwavering faith can light the way through your darkest hours. With faith, the overcast skies will eventually clear unveiling a beautiful day once again. Thats why youve got to have faith. Youve got to!
Even though faith isnt something you can actually see, you can definitely FEEL IT and that wonderful feeling has the POWER to move mountains if you let it! By keeping the faith, you can indeed see things that are out of sight but not out of your reach.
I believe that Norman Vincent Peale summed it up best when he said, "The first step is to fill your life with a positive faith that will help you through anything. The second is to begin where you are."
Put the power of faith to work today. When you believe in yourself and your abilities, youll start living the life youve always imagined.
The Bottom Line: When you have faith, you have all the power youll ever need.
