How Strong Is Your Faith?
October 12, 2021
Between our expectations and acceptance lies our faith, and in our faith lies our freedom.
Everyone gets into something with the expectation of a positive outcome. But for me to realize my expectations, one critical element must be in place. Besides doing something with an expectation of a result, I also do it with the faith that I have the capability and power to accomplish it.
So when life throws me challenges and curveballs, I know that it is not only to test my capabilities but also to test my faith. Do I have it in me to deal with the challenge?
Faith is that belief in a higher power that gives us confidence and trust in the value of our own efforts. Faith is what fills us with the hope that our tomorrow will be better than today. It is an emotion that is spiritual and not intellectual. Faith allows us to lead our lives with the conviction that whatever happens happens for the best.
I gain freedom and flexibility when I don’t become a slave to expectations and operate with a sense of acceptance, having faith in the future.
The best way to relate to the idea of faith is in this amazing quote by Rabindranath Tagore- Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
