What Exactly is it?
It is an absolute KNOWING, without doubt, BEFORE things become apparent to the physical senses. It does not need testing or proof. And every time we place and keep our consciousness upon FAITH – it is a new beginning.
Faith is a corner stone for making changes in our lives, for shifting the patterns that no longer serve our highest good towards something that soars into the heights of our being – which often seems impossible when we continually make efforts and results don’t follow in the timing “we” would like. Consequently, doubt enters. This juncture is also the significant difference between Faith and Hope. Sometimes people confuse the two. Faith KNOWS – it is the substance, the certain forerunner of victory. Hope on the other hand has doubt in it. It has wishing and wanting as part of its nature. When you remove your consent from doubts – they lose all power. This might be easier said than done – but as Emmet Fox said “The Will to Faith in itself constitutes Faith”. Find the WILL and strengthen the FAITH.
On that note, I will sum this up with two of my favorite quotes. The first is a verse that comes from Napoleon Hill’s “THINK AND GROW RICH” and the second is a poem from Dr. James E. Melton’s book “YOUR RIGHT TO FLY” written by Martha Belknap:If you think you are beaten, you are, If you think you dare not, you don’t If you like to win, but you think you can’t, It is almost certain you won’t If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost, For out of the world we find, Success begins with a person’s WILL – It’s all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are, You’ve got to think high to rise. You’ve got to be sure of yourself before, You can ever win a prize. Life’s battles don’t always go To the stronger or faster man But soon or late the one who wins Is the one WHO THINKS HE CAN!
YOUR RIGHT TO FLYIsaac Newton sat one day And pondered by a tree And as he watched an apple fall He thought of gravity– What keeps us all upon this earth? What pulls us toward the ground? Why don’t we float or fly away? An answer must be found! The energy which holds us here Defines this time and place It focuses our bodies On a present point in space– But thoughts transcend the world we know And curiosity Can soar beyond the farthest star Unlimited and free– Our spirit brings our minds in tune With energies on high No gravity can hold us back We have the right to fly!
Have FAITH…And FLY!
