Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
Life can occasionally seem like the sternest of tests; taxing your will power and commitment right to the limit. As a matter of fact, it can sometimes get downright difficult to make sense of it all. Even after you have worked and toiled, giving it all youve got, you can still come up on the short end of the stick. Realizing that your best shot just wasnt good enough hurts and hurts a lot.
The numbing heartache that accompanies falling short in your quest to do your best is one of lifes toughest obstacles to overcome. As depression, sadness and despair start to set in, attempting to wrest control of your life, you begin asking yourself, Is it really worth the effort? You begin to question your faith, wondering why in the world bad things keep happening, especially when youre working so hard to make things right. At these times, when hope is all but lost, you need to hold on tight and vow to never let go.
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
You must never let go of your dreams, for as long as you can hold them in your heart and see them in your mind, they are never, ever out of reach. NEVER! And you must never let go of the faith you hold in yourself and your God given talents and gifts, remembering always that God would never place in you in a position you were unable to handle.
Being able to hold on tight until you can turn the tide requires total, unswerving, unconditional faith. And this type of faith doesnt occur by accident or without a tremendous devotion of blood, sweat and tears. In order to develop the power packed faith you require, a faith so strong that it can see you through any and all adversities you encounter in life, you have to build it. And you build this kind of unshakable faith brick by brick by brick. And the sooner you start building, the better.
Faith is the bird that sings when the dawn is still dark.
If you do not have this faith in place when misfortune or difficulties arise, youll find yourself ill equipped to handle the heat, ultimately wilting under the load. Since you have not adequately prepared yourself for this test of your will and your will power, chances are great that you will stumble and fall. Hey, even when you are armed with unflinching faith, there is still a chance youll get bowled over or knocked to your knees.
But heres the difference. By developing an ample reserve of faith, you are able to pick yourself up off the canvas and get back in the game. Your unfailing faith insulates you from defeat, isolates you from despair. But without this kind of faith by your side, you not only get knocked down you stay down for the count. And thats no way for that winner inside you to live, is it?
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
Taking on and then passing lifes toughest tests is by no means an easy gig, but nobody said life is easy all the time. And in spite of what some motivational types are apt to tell you, all of us must face difficult times now and again. None of us, not even one of us, is exempt from taking lifes tests. But just like the tests we took in school, preparation is and always will be the key. And there is no better preparation than building your faith.
Whenever you begin feeling a bit down and out, please remember you are here for a reason; to ultimately thrive, prosper and enjoy the best life offers us all. And in those instances when you feel about as low as you can go, never forget that God is by your side, ready, willing and able to hold your hand every step of the way.
Each and every day is a super day to pump more faith into your life; power based faith that can turn your bad days into good days and your good days into great days. Faith is the key. Once you get faith working with you and not against you, youll start passing all of lifes tests with flying colors.
The Bottom Line: By building your faith, you begin building the life youve always dreamed of living.
