I belive in having faith because faith is what drives the human sprit to overcome insurmountable odds. Faith is the driving force into journeying to the unknown It’s something that science can’t prove even with ten Einstein’s. It’s what can be proven in your heart. There is faith in religion there is faith in your fellow man but all faith is an uderline theme and that there is no certainty that the outcome will be good.

By having faith you have no fear. That once you step out of your doorstep do you ever wonder to yourself what is going to happen to me today? I belive by having faith is that it really cures your doubting conscience that numbs your fears and worriesin the world. Faithultimately helps you get you through your day lets faceit when you have a terrible day would you rather have faith or just be like a scarcrow that lets the crows sit on there back as they watch life go by I don’t know about you but I would rather take faith besides who knows what my happen to you in you in life.

Faith is resembled all around our lives all the time for example oh! I hope I passed that history test or gee! I hope practice is short today because I really don’t want to run lines today. You might be sitting here in English class saying to yourself I may not need faith. Well faith only shows up in mysterious ways when you least expect it. From a David and Goliath perspective nobody thought that a scrawny little teenage boy could beat such a monstrous man by David having faith he overcame his fears and destroyed his enemy.

I belive faith is a magical occurance a bond sort of speak between human an spirt that cannot be explained but only beliving in your heart. Faith I believe is what gets us through our unexpected lives that may lead to a golden path or a treacherous one. I belive that once your character is tested faith comes in like waves coming over a lighthouse on a dark stormy day and washes away our darkest fears.
