Intersection of Hope and Faith...

When the world says, "Give Up" 
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time"
Author Unknown

Often the world is shouting at you not to give up but all you hear is the sound of your own voice.   That  voice coming from a place of doubt and fear daring you to give in and lie down.  In these moments, which there have been many, I have begun to better rely on the faith that others have in me.  

"Faith is simply the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things..."

When I begin to think this is all not worth it, and I can not do this another day, I hear those whispers to just try one more time.  If it's not a whisper, it's an action.  A helping hand, a text, a note, encouragement, I could go on and on at how blessed I have been for the faith and commitment of those around me.  It is when we begin to have as much faith in ourselves as those that love us, when we look in the mirror and see through the eyes of love rather than doubt and judgement, that we can truly begin to heal.  And if hope doesn't get me to my desired destination; I have a new found faith that I will be okay. 

Unconditional Love

There is no more generous gift one can give than their faith in you...I am learning that perhaps love is the bridge between hope and faith. Nothing more, nothing less. Faith allows you to loosen the death grip on hope and the security to leap and know that you will always have a soft place to land. To all my bridges out there...thank you.

  1. So so true, and such a good thing to admit. I was surprised this week at the support I got when I was at my lowest. I'm glad you have a support network as well, I think it's key.
