The Cost of Faith

Recently, speaking with a friend over some challenges I said, “Have faith. I feel it always works out in our best interest!”

To my surprise she answered, “Faith is like hope…it isn’t always available.”

I don’t resonate with this. Faith has allowed me to walk blindly into places without fear. It has grounded me to let go of expectations while trusting in Divine guidance. It has removed anxiety and desperation. But…that’s just me. Faith and Hope are Mystical. And I choose to believe.

Faith is not an ability to foresee the outcome of a situation. It isn’t the holding on and believing the far circumstances of every tomorrow. Faith is the anchor that holds certainty even when it doesn’t look good. It is taking every single step blindly while knowing that the Universe has your best interest. You aren’t in control so let go and let God! ~m.a.p.

  1. “Faith is believing in something even when common sense tells you not to.” … a line from the original version of “Miracle on 34th Street”. I’ve always loved this line. And truthfully, there have been times when faith was ALL I had to keep me going, keep me from giving up. So, needless to say, I am with you all the way on this one!

    This blog post by my dear friend, Millie, says it all for me. Faith is what has kept me going at times when it felt like all hope was lost. There is a line from the original version of the movie “Miracle on 34th Street” that brings it all into perspective for me: “Faith is believing in something even when common sense tells you not to.”
