~FAITH~

I believe that somewhere in this incredibly crazy world we live in, the word faith has dissipated.

I was always told that faith is believing the sun will rise, after each new day. Faith is the knowledge of believing that things will get better, even if we can’t see the end result. Complete faith is the knowledge of things hoped for but not seen.


For me, faith has to be my driving force, the reason I want to get up each morning. It’s the glue that keeps me connected to a hope for a brighter tomorrow and the knowledge that heaven truly is a beautiful place.

There are two primary forces in this world, fear and faith. Fear can move you to destructiveness, sickness, or failure. Only in rare instances will it motivate you to accomplishment… But faith is a greater force. Faith can drive itself into your consciousness and set you free from fear forever.

In the world today, fear has taken precedence over faith. There is so much uncertainty in mankind, putting all of their faith in the natural man & relying on so many outside sources that seem so confusing. The yearning for peace & stability can be very unwavering.

I for one, know that the faith I had as a little child is what gets me through the toughest days. The days I spend with little children keep me grounded in knowing that their sweet & innocent spirits are what help make me a better person.

when I see faith as the driving force, I picture children playing at recess together, puppies snuggled against their mothers warm body, & babes in the arms of their fathers , while their mothers sleep soundly in white satin sheets.

True faith always moves a person to some kind of physical or mental action; it carries an assurance of the promise of things hoped for that can’t actually be seen.

Faith always leads to a righteous action, a honest desire & a hope that things will get better.

Some positive benefits of faith are: Inner strength to give back & serve the less fortunate, It gives purpose in life & helps to overcome stress, anxiety & fear.

Faith can be the pathway to finding solutions & gives a sense of belonging. It brings peace & joy to sustain us through the most difficult trails of life.

People were naturally drawn to the Savior Jesus Christ because of his mild temper & heartfelt abiding love for his children. The love the Savior has for all his children exemplifies the most complete and infinite kind of faith & is the core of goodness that can be seen in the most humble followers of Christ today.

FAITH:

F is for FREEDOM from sin

A is for the ASSURANCE that Christ does live

I is for the INCREDIBLE love he has for his children

T is for the TENDERNESS of his loving arms around us

H is for HOPE of a brighter tomorrow & peace for a brand new day
