Faith..

They say to have faith in is to trust in. The word "faith" literally means "trust". And when I hear this word, first thing came up to my mind is belief. I'm not going to talk about faith/belief in the perspective of religion but looking it from the view of our self, the belief within our self. How we do things with our beliefs. Your true self. Having a faith means having your own belief of the things you have in your mind. What you have to be able to keep in mind is to have a courage to keep your faith within you. If you're giving too many option in front of you, just considering that it's a test of faith. Maybe this is the way that God wants you to understand the voice within you. God knows that actually you are able to choose what's right for you. You just have to be very sure of it. Hold on to your faith, believe it, give trust in it and I'm sure you will always be able to step put from your gloomy situation. Below is a perfect reading from dailyom.



Above The Clouds - The Sun Is Always Shining


There are times when gloom or darkness causes us to momentarily lose sight of the light. Although it is at these times when the thought of the sun can help us. Its warm, glowing rays brighten even our thoughts, and it's good to remember that despite appearances the sun is shining right now. We may not be able to see it at this very moment, but if clouds block our view, they are only filtering the sun's light temporarily. If darkness has fallen, we know that the sun is still shining at this very moment somewhere not too far away, and it's only a matter of time before it will shine on us again.


When we remember that the sun is still shining, we know that things are still in motion in the universe. Even if life feels like it is at a standstill, sometimes all we need to do is have faith and wait for the time when everything is in its perfect place. Or we can we can choose to follow the cues of the sun and continue doing our work and shining our light, even when we can't yet see results. In doing so we exercise our patience, making sure we are prepared when opportunity knocks and all other elements are in their right and perfect places.


The sun also reminds us that our own shining truth is never extinguished. Our light shines within us at all times, no matter what else occurs around us. Though the sun gives us daily proof of its existence, sometimes our belief in our own light requires more time. If we think back, however, we can find moments when it showed itself and trust that we will see it again. Like the sun, our light is the energy that connects us to the movements of the universe and the cycles of life and is present at all times, whether we feel its glow or not.

This is something I have been thinking about this weekend. I think that having faith and belief go hand in hand for me. I want to have faith that God is good and God gives us a all the resources we need to be make good decisions. Sometimes, it seems hard especially if you are having a hard time. However, I noticed that there are sparkling moments even in the darkness. Those sparkling moments help encourage my heart that no am not alone and yes, I can believe in myself.
