It’s been about six weeks since I pulled the faith rock. And what I have learned is this:
Faith lives inside the pauses between progress, between acceptance, between healing.
It securely, without fail, holds the divide between those long, sometimes deep, sometimes painful pauses.
While Grace gifts us all the time we need to figure it all out, to grieve, to ignite possibility, to find our way, faith is what holds us all the while.
It is enduring, always there, and it will never fail us.
It is letting go, knowing it will be the bridge from one season of our lives to the next.
It is trusting the process as we embrace change and surrender our fears.
It is believing, with tremendous courage, that all the lessons, the work, the leaps, the falls, the struggles, the celebrations are for a purpose much larger than we can fathom – an ultimately good, beautiful, worth it purpose.
My faith is growing. I’m seeing now all the ways that I deeply depend on it, how it has held the divide for me, time and time again. Without it, nothing would be possible. And one thing is for sure:
Courage does not exist without an existence of faith. And faith does not exist without the courage to believe.
They go together. Like love, and …. love.
