What exactly is faith? How do you find it if you do not have it? How do you find something you do not understand? How do you find something you cannot experience with your 5 senses?
By definition faith is: trust, a belief, confidence, conviction, optimism, and hope in someone of something.
Another definition from Merriam-Webster dictionary is “ having a firm, strong belief in the integrity, ability, effectiveness, or genuineness of someone or something.”
It is not easy to have faith. We are not born with it. It is not within us but something we must develop as we grow older. We must find the strength within us to look to something that is not tangible. We must find the strength within us to let go of things we cannot control. We must find the strength within us to look to the Universe, Spirit, Higher Power, whatever it may be that is bigger than us. And we must do these things every day. One step at a time. Even if the step is a baby step. A step is a step no matter how small or large. And this is how we find and keep faith in our lives every day.
Namaste, my friends
