Do you have a story of faith you’d like to share?
We all wish for an easy life!
We don’t want hurdles in our way or any accidents to happen. A smooth ride, all the way.
But life is seldom like that. Invariably, we face hardships on the way.
These hardships teach us something very important about life. They teach us to look for an anchor. Faith in a power higher than ourselves.
My story is not of startling discovery but of a subtle realization.
I was just six when my mother died. I wasn’t old enough to understand death or mourn for her. In my teens, I started missing her the most. It was at that time that I was looking for an anchor. Some way to justify to myself the loss of my mother who died at 26 years of age.
At the age of 14-15, I realize that I felt the presence of God in my life. There was no other reason for me to miss my mother who I didn’t even remember properly. The love I felt for her and the tears I shed for her were proof that there was a divine power who had created this love.
From here my faith gradually grew and helped me overcome the hurdles in my life. Every time I was down or distraught, I felt the strength my faith gave me and it lifted me up.
The trials of life, bring out our true potential. They make us stronger in spirit and mind and give us the hope that things will be alright.
Many times in my life, I have taken strength from my faith and hope that God will give us what is best for us.
“We are given not what we want but what we need”
This is my story.
Thanks for reading.
