Chapter 7, Page 12, Book 16

He who has faith has... an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well — even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly. 

B.C. Forbes

July 12th - keep the faith

Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys. 

 Madeleine L’Engle

Faith is not the absence of fear but rather the ability to face and overcome fear.  We live in a world of challenges, dangers and stress. It’s no wonder that so many lack faith, but faith and love are sure to overcome

One thing I know, maybe two, is that if you're allowing yourself to be overcome by anxiety and fear, then you're showing that you don't have enough faith. The more trust you have, the more confident you are in change and what happens in the future.

Faith is not without worry or care, but faith is fear that has said a prayer. 

Author Unknown

Faith is more than a teaching, it's a life style. We walk by faith not by sight which causes conflicts in our lives.  We need to have faith.  Faith that everything will work out; faith that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and faith that this too shall pass.  Everything in life has its place and purpose.

Life without faith in something is too narrow a space to live. 

George Lancaster Spalding

Trust in the Lord and have faith. God is in control. Nothing is impossible for GOD. NOTHING!!

When you come to the end of all the light you know and step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: Either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.

 Edward Teller



Mr. Teller and you got it right.

Without faith, I think it would be impossible to live, especially in the times we are living in. We have to have faith that God is in control, he can do the impossible, and all that is happening isn't catching him by surprise. We have to have faith he'll continue working his plan out through us if we just trust in him.

Many folk in the world are confused on the meaning of Faith. I think it was summed up in this statement:
Faith is not the absence of fear but rather the ability to face and overcome fear.
