I “know” when I turn my laptop on that I will be able to wirelessly access the internet through my wifi. When I can’t see the sun shining behind clouds, I still “know” it is there. This “knowing” is “believing,” which is the equivalent to “faith.”
Faith is so often misunderstood. Typically it is associated with religion but it is so much more. We all practice faith in our daily lives, yet are so quick to negate having faith when it comes to things that seem unattainable or require hard work.
The answer unfortunately, is usually because of fear. Since we are conditioned to be fearful of failure, when something seems unattainable or cannot be seen, the thought of failure invokes fear, in turn causing us to lose faith.
I love this quote:
“Fear and Faith have something in common. They both ask us to believe in something we cannot see.” – Joel Osteen
To have faith is to see light with your heart when all your eyes see is darkness. If we let our faith be bigger than our fear, things we thought unattainable may only be the beginning of what we are capable of.
So, what can you take from this… Your future is only as bright as your faith.
