Faith

Posted: August 21, 2011 in Trials of Life

This is a page from Science of Mind magazine that really inspired me one day when I was feeling extremely low:

“When you have come to the edge… and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught to fly.” Patrick Overton

“When you analyze faith, you find that it is a mental attitude against which there is no longer any contradiction in the mind that entertains it.”  The Science of Mind p.283

At some point in life, everyone is brought to thier knees.  Eventually, we each come to a place where everything we’ve tried has failed, or everything we’ve known is no longer applicable.  It is in this place that we find GOD.

When we come to the end of our inflated and insignificant ego-achivements, we find ourselves standing in awe of the sacred life of our Creator. it is here that humility and faith meld within us to form a confidence that all is well.

Sometimes we find our faith be losing it first.  Some circumstances come along in life to challenge us. At first, we are afraid.  We ask, “Why me???”   And then, after our knee-jerk human reaction, we realize we have a choice:  Will we fall victim to our circumstances, or reach down within and find the faith to overcome them?

Every challenge  brings a gift hidden within.  Everything occurs to teach us faith and calls on us to depend on a Power higher than our own.  Everything is designed to bring us closer to GOD.

What is happening in your life to challange you?  How will it strengthen your faith?  How is it bringing you closer to GOD?

(The following is a daily affirmation that is at the bottom of everything page)

GOD has resources that I dont know about yet.  I have faith that everything necessary to overcome my challenge will be supplied.

Needless to say, I think everything going through anything in their lives needs to pick this handy magazine up.  You can find it at your local Chapters.  Some days its been my salvation.  And its it seems like God himself directs it somedays, just what is on my mind some days is what the daily guide will be about.  Some days its down right creepy how accurate it is.  Some days when you’ve feel like you’ve lost your faith, it helps to regain some of it back.
