Writer’s Quote Wednesday Faith


A thought just came to me. That someone should sell bottles of glue with the brand name: FAITH. Why? Well, it seems that when everything is falling apart, FAITH is what holds it together for many. Perhaps we can have a FAITH TAPE to mend the tears and rips that keep beliefs teetering on the edge of coming completely unraveled. And could we all put Ph. D. after our names for all the times our FAITH has been tested and we passed?  Just thoughts here.

More thoughts here…  Can you tell when someone is sincere when they slap you on the back and tell you that they HAVE FAITH IN YOU? Do they really mean it or are they simply trying to find something kind to say when they really don’t know what to say? Of course there are those who truly DO mean it and when it comes out of their mouths we get the: “from your lips to God’s ears” chills.

And how, exactly, does one find their FAITH when it is lost? Ah, there’s a deeper than deep thought, for in order to find our FAITH, often times we are placed in situations that require us to do just that. In those often intense moments when we are tying knots in ropes and hanging on, we honestly believe that the alternative is unacceptable.

Think about this, you have survived each and every one of your worst moments. That has to be true, or you wouldn’t be reading this, right?  In each of those moments, those hair raising moments, did you ever think you’d make it? You had to have at some point, because it’s the thinking you can, even if you don’t know how that turns the tide. It’s the saying that there has to be a way, even if you can’t possibly envision what that way could be but holding onto even the smallest shred of hope. It’s the believing in something so strong that it has to manifest for you and rescue you from the pit.

FAITH.  You DO have faith my friend.  You’ve been there, done that and you can do it again and again. You don’t have to know how, simply believe and allow!

For bringing me through

Always making sure I knew

I would be okay

This might not make sense

How can someone explain it

Faith, my friends, it’s faith

  2. Lovely post .I find having faith in myself is the most important goal. I also tend to believe a person can do whatever they put their mind to. Having faith requires a lot of practice, in my experience and it is an ongoing practice .

  7. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Annette Rochelle Aben with some inspiration for the day..Faith covers many aspects of our lives and sometimes that faith in ourselves and the way forward can flag.. but for most of us somehow, things unfurl in the way that they should. That is particularly evident to me in the last three months. Excellent reminder Annette.

    Annette, I really loved your explanation of faith. I decided the greatest gift of faith is to have faith in yourself! A lesson well learned. Hugs to you my friend. I am back to the editing today after a few days off. ❤

  10. I like the analogy about glue, Annette. I believe that glue is God who keeps my faith strong when life is tough. I also hold onto His golden cord of hope. Happy Heart Hugs ❤️
