Do you really have faith?

A lot of things in life really need faith. Do you really have faith?

According to the bible, in Hebrews 11:1, it tells us that "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” - St. Thomas Aquinas

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.” - Edith Hamilton

“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” - Gail Devers

"Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things are possible." - Sir William Osler

Faith, belief, positive thinking makes better people and a better world since the outer world shapes itself to our inner thinking. Quit thinking and talking about war, poverty, and hard times. Think and talk peace, health, plenty and success to help bring them about. Guard your thoughts against negatives as you would your house against thieves.

You can always do your best everyday. Faith is necessary to victory. Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. Discover this power by changing your beliefs!

Faith comes on the heels of perseverance and optimism, Sam. All three of which I have struggled with throughout my life. I love this post, by the way. *thumbs up*
