The Importance of Faith (Part One)
Faith is of great importance in my life. It is a concept that I have been interested in for many years and I am attracted to people who appear to possess a great deal of faith. In this article I will be talking about Christian faith although I believe that everyone has a measure of faith. They may just have faith in different things.
Faith produces trust and hope. I have been through seasons in my life in which I have had little or no hope. That happens when I temporarily do not “press in” for faith. These have also been the most miserable times in my life.
Every day I would like to believe is going to be a good day for me. It is much better to approach each day expecting good things to happen. As I have a mood disorder and a number of physical handicaps this is not always easy.
It says in the Bible that without faith it is impossible to please God. God wants us to believe and trust in him for good things. Of course, this is much easier when circumstances seem to be going our way. Fortunately, there are times when we appear to be “getting the breaks” and we are “feeling it.”
