Faith in Times of Mind Numbing Tragedy

What My Faith Means To Me

Every morning when I wake up, it is faith that empowers me to get out of bed. It is faith that propels me through the day. It is faith that guides me, bobbing and weaving around numerous perils that are in my path, be they perils of my environment or perils from the destructive nuances of my own personality. My faith shows me the limitless possibilities of each day. It is faith that delivers me back home at the end of each day. It is faith that shows me what The Lord wants me to see that day and faith that teaches me the lessons that give me the insights that I have been credited with.

I cannot even imagine what the world is like for someone with no faith. It must be very scary indeed to live in a world filled with so much cruelty, destruction and death and not believe that there is a purpose, to it all. It must be difficult to live the drudgery of each day like a zombie, one day blending into the next with no distinguishable difference between them. To live a life without hope that something better is coming.

For what is faith, except a perspective on life seen through the belief that there is a purpose, there is hope, there are miracles, there is something better coming, there is a loving God. I have witnessed so many miracles in my life that I know there is a loving God behind them. God’s existence for me is unquestionable and undeniable. If Scientists declared that there was proof that God does not exist I would submit evidence to refute it. If the whole of humanity stopped believing in God and hope, I would stand like a lone candle, burning in the darkness to light the way with the light of truth. That is why, the symbol of my faith is a lone candle illuminating the darkness because all who are of faith, no matter which faith we hold, are like candles illuminating the darkness.
