The Conviction of Faith

Conviction is defined as being impressed with a sense of guilt. Doesn’t sound like a good state to be in, huh? However, I submit to you that feelings aren’t good or bad. You can have a good or bad feeling, but that expresses how the feeling makes you feel and not the feeling itself. Feelings just are.

Guilt is a feeling like remorse or regret. We attribute to having done something wrong. That’s actually a good feeling to have then, for how else will we know when we are in error?

People do a lot of things for a lot of reasons. Unless an individual makes up in their mind that what they are doing is wrong for them and desire to change that, nothing will ever change.

Faith requires conviction. In order to believe we have to be inclined to not disbelieve. Doubt is the enemy and when it gets the best of us we should feel guilty for having allowed it to do so. There should be a shameful feeling that keeps us running back to our Faith.

That feeling, that conviction, must come from inside. We must be our own conviction. We cannot rely on circumstance or any external force to change our lives for us. The conviction of our faith is more than enough.

Faith is about conviction; Faith is the foundation of all Violet Ambitions.
