First, some excerpts from the list of meanings Mo posted for the word faith:
- belief that is not based on proof...
- belief in God...
I have to say that I have seen and felt proof that God does exist! As sure as I exist (and I do) so too does God. Without the Universal Mind that we call God, nothing else would or could exist. It would be difficult if not impossible to tell you the reasons why I know it has been proven to me that this One Life, this Creator of all things, Pure Love does exist, so I won't even try. It's not that I have faith that God exists, it's that I KNOW!
Here are some great quotes on faith for your enjoyment:
"Faith is believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe."
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. You can't see the future, yet you know it will come; you can't see the air, yet you continue to breathe.
(Found in a Jewish hiding place during the holocaust)
I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining.
I believe in love
even when I cannot feel it.
I believe in God
even when God is silent.
And now a good story about faith:
One day a 6 year old was sitting in a classroom. The teacher was going to explain evolution to the children. The teacher asked a little boy:
TEACHER: Tommy do you see the tree outside?
TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass outside?
TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see if you can see the sky.
TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the sky.
TEACHER: Did you see God?
TEACHER: That's my point. We can't see God because he isn't there. He just doesn't exist.
A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions.
The teacher agreed and the little girl asked the
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass outside?
LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky?
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher?
LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?
LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we were taught today in school, she must not have one!
And one last quote, about a different kind of faith:
First have faith in those around you, but most importantly always have faith in yourself!
-Reese Witherspoon - Legally Blonde
