What is having faith? To many it is a spiritual thing, to others it is a way of life and to others it is a waste of time. But is faith important in life? I believe so. And I am not just talking about a spiritual faith. So what is faith?
Faith is a complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
So what can you have faith in? God, religion, a person, an organisation and yourself. In my opinion there is only two things to have a complete faith in and that is God and yourself. Yes I believe that you need to trust people and have a confidence in people, however a complete trust or confidence I believe is reserved for God and one’s self.
What I find interesting is that many people put more faith in others or an organisation rather than themselves. Why is it that we often do not trust ourselves, but will trust others? You are the only one that completely has your best interest in mind…You have the ability to overcome great odds, to develop yourself and the achieve great things. Yes there will be challenges, setbacks and failures. However you have the internal strength to overcome and succeed.
So next time you doubt yourself, have faith. Pray if you need too and move forward. Remember that you can succeed and if you do not, you will learn from the experience and do better next time, Trust in yourself more than others. So if you trust in others, and you should, trust completely in yourself and believe that you can achieve many things.
