Gotta Have Faith

?Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)?

Yesterday I was having a conversation with one of my husband's very best friends about faith. He was questioning how it is possible to remain faithful when you get frustrated that things are not happening as fast as you'd like for them to. For me, it all goes back to faith. Either you believe, or you don't.

Trusting that whatever plan God (or whatever higher you believe in) has for you is the right one and that everything is as it is supposed to be – that's all faith. I'm certainly not saying that I am perfect and that my own faith doesn't falter from time to time – but ultimately, my faith is a driving force in who I am.

I try not to delve into the religious here because for me, religion and spirituality are fairly personal. I'm not ashamed of my beliefs, but I also don't feel the need to evangelize about them for the most part.
