Day 22 of the 28 Days of Thanks: Faith

28 days of thanks: I’m thankful for faith 

“Prayer is asking for rain. Faith is carrying an umbrella. Faith is the inner sense of knowing that with divine order working on your side, all things will come together for your good. Faith is knowing that there is a divine plan and purpose for everything in life.” ~Iyanla Vanzant 

I didn’t know how powerful faith was meant to be… until I had 100% of it.
Faith and belief feel very similar to me… Faith may feel a little lighter than belief, for me…
Belief is very strong, and a little aggressive for me at times…in a good way…
Faith for me is a little lighter of a feeling…. it has a little bit more space than belief…

Why I’m thankful for my faith

Faith has guided me and inspired me… and I am very grateful for the amount of faith I have learned to grow…
Faith is belief in the unknown… it’s understanding and peace… I am thankful for my faith in the present and the future and for the amount of peace that I have because of my own…
It does not have to be blind….sometimes it is…in a “fake it til you make it” kind of way…
In a breaking habits so new ones can grow kind of way…
Knowing that if we do our work and continue on our path of abundance and growth, that which we focus on grows…which includes our faith…
The more faith we put in faith, the more of it we will have…
Faith is a choice….and I reflect on a conversation I had with a friend of mine…that isn’t sure whether God exists or not…. questions blind faith….
By moving in the direction of faith….
my belief in faith….
the energetic force that faith carries…. 
strengthens…
By realizing the value of faith….I chose to strengthen my own…and was guided to thoughts and ideas…
that strengthen my faith….
And when we loose faith…. we can always lean on the faith of others.
By surrounding ourselves with positive, faith-minded people, we are never short of the inspiration and strength that we need when we feel our own faith wavering…
For me, having no faith doesn’t feel good….
Faith, for me, is happiness….it’s joy….peace….and love….
To live with no faith…. for me….is no way to live….
So, I choose to move in the direction of faith…. 

Did I manifest faith? Maybe…

I had a thought just a few days ago…

A few years ago, maybe 4 or 5, on my Facebook page, where it says Religious Beliefs, I put:

Woman of faith…

When I wrote that, I meant that I am a Godly woman… from a religious perspective…that I believe in God, but I do not necessarily want to put Catholic or Christian, or non-denominational, because first and foremost, bottom line – I have faith in God…a higher power…. I am a woman of faith…

Today, faith is not just a religious issue…or a buzz word that comes up when we want to let something go and just “have faith”….

I am thankful that today, I can apply faith to my whole being, and literally have faith in all things…not just a segmented conversation…

I am thankful that I walk in faith every moment…
