And what has God provided us as a means of safely negotiating the travesties of life and withstanding the horrible things inherent in life? Faith: pure and simple. And this is the practice of a set of attitudes, ideals, values, beliefs and behaviours that sees us living a calm, peaceable, victorious and grace-filled existence.
Yet, more often than not we’re personally found to struggle in our acquisition of such a faith–a faith anyone can have.
Faith is not something that is “acquired.” It is something that is grown. And this faith grows in quietness, and in solitude, like the little guy thoughtfully eating his play lunch by himself in lonely courtyard at school. Faith meanders through the glistening meadows of life, patiently observing and taking it all in. Call it training.
Faith, too, grows in amongst stark hardship. Knowing through the above observation that life turns on a ten cent piece, we can now expect that “life” will turn on us at some point. God’s not personally vindictive. He just “is.”
