PONDEROUS THOUGHT Prompt
This month, share one or more places in which you put your faith. Also, if you do not believe in the concept of faith, share your view as well.
There is only one place where I put my faith; My inner spirit, my soul
Faith is a feeling, an emotional state, which has no physical basis. It grows in the soul and it’s branches anchor the spirit to the greater universe by each passing incident that strengthens it. Sometimes we let our faith flounder in the sea of forgetfulness and it weakens to a degree that it is almost lost. It is that tree that needs to be nourished daily with the juice of our belief.
There is a difference between faith and belief. Belief is a state of being convinced of something and faith is the outcome of this belief finding roots and growing into a strong tree.
I found my belief at a comparatively young age. It came when I was tested and the sorrow led me to turn to the only source of comfort I knew, my faith in God. I grew to realize that all the joy and sorrow of this life come from one source only; The love of God.
God, Almighty loves us and tests us to make us turn towards the right path. The path of goodness and kindness. No life lived, has been lived without sorrow of one kind or the other and this is because each trial strengthens us and makes us realize how much we need to be grateful for all that we have.
The fortunate people, who have the insight to look beyond the apparent see the reason for these trials and tribulations and find their faith.
Each and every day, I am grateful for my faith
