From Moment to Moment

Faith. I have often spoken against the notion of Faith as a religious concept. It is a disabling thing to pin such a powerful ideal up into a category. The connotation is there, of course, because of how the word is used; however, faith is more like courage. The only difference is that usually when we use the word courage we are speaking about a belief in ourselves to overcome opposition. Faith suggests that something through us, something that we are believing external from us is working for our benefit. The external force can be love or hope or an individual. Faith puts into play the notion that maybe the world does not hate us. Maybe everything external from our being is not our enemy. Faith is a powerful concept.

We have also come to think of Faith as something we obtain once and carry it forever. But I submit to you that faith is not a commodity to be bought and coveted. It is something that requires attention and conscious will to maintain. Faith never means that we won’t have doubts; it just means we will overcome them…from moment to moment.
