Faith is a promise

You cannot know all the answers. Yet you can have faith that the answers you seek do exist.

Faith can keep you going when logic and reason alone have failed you. Faith gives you deeper, more sustained access to strength than would otherwise be possible.

Faith is often conflated with belief in a supernatural power. But it’s actually trust in a higher power that’s entirely consistent with nature and reality.

Faith humbly acknowledges that there are more possibilities than you can imagine. Faith instills the truth that a significant number of those are possibilities for goodness.

Faith is not a certainty that can be verified by the current facts you have at hand. Indeed, it is quite the opposite.

Faith is a promise you can embrace in your most intimate realm. And often, such a promise is exactly what you need.

— Ralph Marston
