What I like about faith is it ‘jives’ with my reality of the world I live in.
Faith is one aspect of my character that choose not to give up on someone even though others can write that person off. Maybe some people hold this kind of grace out for me as well? If so, thanks.
Nothing on this planet is certain (in someones life). I think we wish it all was scripted and written out, we would have our certainty. Thats not what we have but this uncertainty allows for us to learn and become more aware. We are never the same person from day to day and year to year, maybe that’s a good thing?
Our knowledge is limited (one person in a sea of people) and we use faith all the time to ‘fill in the gaps’. But not filling in those gaps leaves us in a state of flux, a kind of uncertainty that makes us uncomfortable, even can drive us crazy. It humbles me to know I don’t know it all and I need everyone else around me to help fill in the pieces I am lacking in, I have faith we can make the best outcome with the pieces of info we have been given.
God is a mystery. Not human, no voice, no face, no figure, no appearances, etc. It’s plausible to not believe because what is their to believe? Its also plausible to believe since it’s supposed to be mysterious. Wouldn’t it be weird to know something about someone called God and have them figured out? Wouldn’t we then be gods as well?
I’m just saying faith makes sense in many ways in the world we live in – and it’s a very acceptable way to help view the world through the lense you call life.
