Faith Is…

What is Faith?

I believe in faith. I believe that faith is what helps everyone go through life, and also overcome what they have to achieve. Faith is something that can only come from you, and no matter what, no other person in this world can have the same amount of faith as you do. Faith is nothing you can find over night it is something that takes some time to find. It is also something special that you can only have if you believe that MIRCLES DO HAPPEN.

To me faith is something that no matter what I always go back to and look for when I need just that little bit of moral support, to help me overcome what is happening, and also what is yet to come in my life. I also turn back to how much faith I have during the day if there is just that one moment in my life that I really need to refer back to just how much I take my life for granted. To have faith, I believe you have to understand that everyone is equal and also have a true relationship with Christ, because without him we will and wouldn’t be able to be anything if it wasn’t for him.

One example that God tested me on how much faith I have was when my grandmother passed away, and it really have affected the way I do things now. My faith was tested the most when I found out that she had passed away and we were in the middle if taking our Task test my eight grade year. I had to rely on my faith to get me through the rest of the day and also through the next couple of days that I had to go through before I had to face the fact that she was really gone.

Faith is having to deal with that inside feeling of self-conscience and the love all at the same time. It is also having the patience to go through something and not depend on friends, and also on other people around you. It is also having that thought in your head that you are to never give up no matter how hard the moment is, and also living through the rest of your life and not having just a little bit of faith. This I believe.
