Faith Continued

 I did not choose this year's word.
It chose me.

At first I was scared.
That's how I roll.

How am I to tackle a year of faith?
I don't even know if I have faith?
What does faith even mean?
Letting go of control?
I work hard to have the little control I have!

That's when I realized that faith is the opposite of fear
and I have always lived holding the hand of fear.
My challenge is to drop fear's hand and pick up the hand of faith.

letting go
believing in something bigger than ourselves

We get one shot at life
We must choose how to spend it.
Live dying
die living.

I could use a good dose of that.

I'll give you five reasons I am choosing to work at walking in faith.

I especially like that last quote. I also like your quote: "My challenge is to drop fear's hand and pick up the hand of faith."
