Hints and Tints of Hope!

The first step in gaining back lost faith…

Regardless of what we believe in, losing faith can be the most dangerous feeling that one could ever feel. Losing faith is very dangerous because one cannot gain it back through conventional means that rely on facts and real examples. When you have faith, you just believe, and you do not expect for science or anything to provide assurance of this faith. You can have faith in goodness, people, your skills, body, or mind! You can have faith in God (or a God!). Since one’s faith is not really defined by science, it is subject to change. In fact, we might have learned the hard or easy way that “change is the only constant.” Since faith is one of the most important pillars in forming one’s unique identity, it is important to gain it back to have the balance that gives a comfortable life!

It is important to gain back faith especially if you are feeling guilty for even thinking you might have lost it! Am not a fan of “testing” faith; but, I believe that there are hints or signs to look out for. While miracles do happen very rarely, I generally do not advice to expect miracles or look for them! However, the people, the mind, or the God that you once had strong faith in, left traces of goodness and credibility behind them when they were gone. When you are on the search or wait for these hints, it is crucial to listen to your heart and trust your gut. Because, again, faith is based on beliefs not necessarily facts. Basically, open your eyes and look into the minor details of everything around you. You had such beliefs for a reason. Eventually, that strong faith you once had and maybe questioned a bit…still exists. Just keep your soul and senses open!

  1. Striking a balance between belief and understanding is definitely difficult. It is a rare occasion when the facts and logic you encounter in life help bolster your faith and peek beyond the veil, rather than make you doubt anything that isn’t mundane existence, but it’s beautiful when it happens. Part of the trick is to keep your eyes open for these rare opportunities, and savor them when they come. ❤

  2. I love this. When times are hard, it is my faith that gets me through. When times get hard, it is comforting to think there is more to life than we fully understand. So many times I have had what I call “God Moments.” These moments give me comfort and help me feel the love of God. Sometimes my faith gets shaky, and I even feel angry, but God seems to always find a way to leave me speechless

  3. To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary Nashwa. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason. Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys.

  4. This is why God Himself–His existence and reason–is thankfully not dependent upon the strength of our faith. This is why absolute truth is not determined on how we feel on a particular day. I can’t tell you how incredibly thankful I am for this, that I am granted time and grace to grow.

  5. I really enjoyed your post. This is such a hard thing for many people, especially in our world now. Many are searching, but God says “seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened, ask and it shall be given…” more people need to ask Him for direction and to show himself and it would happen. But then again that takes faith thT they may not have
