4 Things We Should Remember About Faith


3. Faith comes in the storm, not in the calm of life.

We all have a strong sense of faith when our blessings are laid comfortably and conveniently out before us.

When we are in the midst of a storm, we must look past the raging seas and threatening winds to see all that we have to be grateful for. It is during the storm that we must stare into the terror of it and smile, knowing that there is a Divine reason.

True faith is trusting that God has a plan and purpose for the storm, that there is a reason we are experiencing it, regardless of the outcome.

More to the point, it is trusting the storm itself to be a mighty and fierce teacher and trusting ourselves to be competent students.

If you’re in the midst of a storm, facing the unknown or standing at a fork in the road choosing between a path of fear or faith, choose the latter every time.

After all, of the two, it’s the only thing that’s real; fear is the illusion.
