Faith and Trust
What is faith? Merriam Webster defines faith as: firm belief in something for which there is no proof; without question.
One’s faith in God/Creator Source is tested when trials, disappointments and tragedies happen in our lives. The questions of, “Why is this happening to me? What have I done to deserve this?” are often part of ones’ inner dialogue.
Strong spiritual faith is knowing, that somehow you will get through the situation and learn and become spiritually stronger and wiser from it all; that there is a positive aspect to the entire event possible for you to achieve. Often more than just yourself will learn and develop positively from the experience(s). The potential growth is in living through the challenging situation with this knowing. Faith- (Inner strength,) being non-judgmental, discernment and patience are needed. So is trust.
Trust is defined as: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something; one in which confidence is placed.
With faith, (no matter how much or little one has,) is trust. Trust in matters of Faith say, “I know, (in my heart; not always in my head) that I am able to persevere and make it through all that this situations presents to me. I will overcome this. (I might not look pretty or feel good, but I will be able to cope/handle and learn from this.)
Trust is the energetic glue that supports the many aspects of ones’ spiritual strength. You are trusting in your oneness with God/Creator, in your soul’s wisdom to bring you this challenging experience, and your human will that you are making the best choices for yourself (and others) in this trial.
Meditation, prayers, quiet alone time, art and dancing are all tools to help one through these times. Seeing yourself sitting with God/Creator, accepting oneness with the Divine; asking for clarity in understanding the lessons in the situation, potential for growth. Allowing oneself to listen and understand your intuitive messages that come to you. Taking one day at a time, as best you can is all that is asked of us. Remembering to be thankful for all that is experienced; All that you experience.
Faith and trust go together. Faith in yourself is required. Faith is the ladder and trust is the bridge that gets us to greater and greater spiritual truths and development of our souls. We grow through all of our life’s experiences.
