    I Could Not Live Without Faith

    The closer I feel connected  to my SPIRIT/SOUL the better my life always is...When I have a bath, I always light a candle and turn off the lights...Then I meditate before and after I have bathed. Now  if I can just remember not to let external everyday...

    Let Go...

    ...and Let God. I leave it up to Him; I can't begin to explain how much more peaceful my mind has been since I realized that He is SO much more powerful than I am.  Not to mention that He takes care of everything.  There's so little to worry about when I'm not trying...

    Walk By Faith, Not By Sight...song by Keith and Kris Getty

    We take so many things by faith each day. Whether it be taking the train, bus, driving or having that meal to that we have. We may walk in to a take away and place our order. All this is done by faith, as we expect things to happen and take it for granted. The same is our life...

    Without

    I have lived without  faith, and with faith. The later being the more challenging.  Faith is certainly the main staple of the essence of my being now.  I will never look back. Faith is going up to the well, and laying hands on that pump, and...

    Why do people fake who they are .

    ..... It pains me terribly . It's so rude. Don't you respect or value another's time. As you sow , so shall you reap. Have the courage to put your fears , whatever they maybe , aside . If you can't be honest , well that just makes you a liar.

    I Learned Early On, But Still Struggled With It.

    I would work so hard to try to get somewhere in life, and constantly lacked the faith it took to know that it was out of my hands anyway and that somehow I will be provided for.  Maybe not all I wanted but I definately got all I needed, and with a few prayers to the higher...

    Cranky

    I can't do fear very well, I get cranky and mean. I'm not very nice when I'm mean, I'm....mean. I hate being mean. Faith is a wonderful thing, having faith, giving faith, they're both brilliant!

    I Having Living Faith.

    Living faith stands not in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Let's face it, if you put your faith in what you know, even in the Bible, sooner or later you are apt to find someone who knows more than you do. If you do not have living faith, someone will be able to...

    I Deserve the Best...

    When I trust that things will work out with the situation at hand it does. When I'm fearful, it makes things harder and in the end it still works out because after a while a part of me asks "why aren't you trusting?" I relax and everything works out.
