Faith…what a word....Anyone can have faith in anything, a god, a friend, a pet…But the faith that is forever is faith in God…Sounds like a Sunday school pat answer right? Of course…funny thing is, it’s so true and obvious that sometimes people look over it and go their own way. In Blue Like Jazz, Don Miller says the thing about Christian faith is that you believe it and don’t believe it at the same time…It’s the thing that I love about it…You can try to explain to someone why you believe what you believe, but sometimes its harder than stale bread because either you chicken out or you realize the Christian faith is a huge mystery. I’m not saying this is an excuse for failing to share your faith with someone, because explaining how much of a mystery it is really could interest someone…Now if what I have just said makes little or no sense, its understandable. ADD and a tired brain will have that affect. J In essence, what it comes down to is realizing there is something greater than anything we see, hear, or touch. There is something out there that our minds cannot comprehend, no matter how hard we try. God created it that way. He wants us to understand what we need to, and keep the rest a mystery, which is what is so awesome about believing in Him. You keep going and growing and you never reach the end, at least here. What I have come to realize is that God can blow your mind everyday if you just look at the sun, stars, nature, and maybe someone you love who God has put in your life. For that moment, if never before, you believe with all that you have, and hope you become everything He intended you to be.
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
