FAITH...the assurance of things hoped for but not yet seen. The belief that things are not as they seem. The belief that things can be different that what they appear to be.
I don’t know where I would be without it…I actually may not “be” at all. Faith kept me going when all else seemed to be falling apart around me. Faith kept my eyes set on the hills when I was in the dark valley.
Faith kept me pushing, kept me motivated, kept me expecting…expecting that as I kept moving forward, even if I had to crawl at times, I was going to arrive on a different path. I was going to feel the bright sun’s warmth on my face again. I was going to get to see and enjoy the beauty along that path.
Faith…a determination to believe when circumstances push you to think the opposite. This journey has its ups and downs, its twists and turns, its bumps and potholes. Keep your eyes facing forward, only glancing in your rearview mirror briefly to ensure there is a safe distance between you and what is behind you. Keep moving forward with anticipation, with FAITH.
