That moment, no matter how brief, when worries cease and everything seems to be perfectly in place.
Some may find faith by witnessing the breeze blowing through a tall and mighty Oak. Others, by the innocent smile of a child. Some may find faith in the kind words of a parent or sibling. Others, in the voice of a stranger. An email or a text. A phone call from a friendly acquaintance, or a newfound love. In a book. In the words of a song that go straight to the heart, or a scene from a movie that changes an outlook. In the sermon of a street corner preacher or a world renowned minister. In the recovery of a cancer patient. In the rehabilitation of a drug addict or an alcoholic.
By the actions of a friend...or an enemy.
Never underestimate the power and reality of faith. Faith originates from only one true source, and that is, The Spirit of Life, itself. But, it may travel through a variety of conductors and outlets to reach the intended recipient. Never discredit or discourage the happiness, or feeling of excitement from an inspired soul, just because it’s different from your own. God created each human being and spirit being, with their own unique individuality to display the grandeur of diversity in His designing skills.
A sublime world. A beautiful medley of vibrant colors, harmonious sound, intricate detail...only flawed by our perception...
