When you put your faith in G-d and let Him determine the outcome, you will be amazed by the ingenuity and miraculous resolution chosen to occur on your behalf.

It is not just empty words of Faith, but rather, your words create the destiny that you seek. Merely reaching out your hand, and asking for help, you receive a universal reply. With so many things happening in the world for millions and billions of people, you cannot imagine what exists beyond your line of sight.

When you believe, miracles occur. When you put out your hand with faith, sincerity, kindness and compassion, you are treated with respect and that kind of behavior in return. Those who cannot see it, nor appreciate it, are simply not the right kind of people for you to associate with. Put this way, it seems rather simplistic. We spend so much of our lives fighting to make things that are immoveable go, yet we cannot seem to turn our backs and actually Let Go.

We carry around so much more with us that weighs us down. For anyone who is a caring, kind, and an empathetic person, we cannot imagine it any other way. But, there comes a time when you must rescue yourself from those that would overpower you and anchor themselves with your strength.

I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart: I am, I am, I am.
– Sylvia Plath

“How do you tell if something’s alive? You check for breathing.”
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

In one of those rare moments when I rose above the pain, I realized that I was breathing. It was not just one of those shallow breaths that we hold onto for too long; it rose above me and out towards the world.

I had been holding my breath for so long, or trying not to, that I did not know how good it would feel.

This was a moment when I realized I could see beyond the grief. Once I exhaled, I realized that I had clarity in my mind as well as my body.

These moments are to be treasured for breathing is no simple task. Holding onto our air and diving deep, or being submerged with no known way out, takes more effort. It costs more, it feels more, to withhold our breath.

My grief and loss took my breath away and I did not know how long it would take to get it back. Once I did, I realized just how long I had been under the ebbs and flows of pounding waves, and how long it had taken me to come out to shore. My feet pressing into the Earth was a reminder that other parts of my body denied attention were still there.

Trying to ground myself deeper into being reminded me that those whose lack of empathy or compassion was truly hurtful no longer deserved my attention. It was my own once again.

Even if it only happened once in awhile, I was miraculously able to acknowledge it, appreciate it, and wait for its next return.

Believe in the power of Faith for it is the only thing that has allowed change to occur.

Where faith is denied, Love cannot grow.

Faith can be in a Heavenly Power. But, it can also be faith that is restored in humanity, optimism, or a renewed sense of self.

Faith can be the leap into the unknown because change is easier than staying in the situation that you are in.  Faith can be the incredible effort that you make in entering the world each day to overcome pain and fear.

Faith is the quiet voice within you that says things have to get better; there must be another way. Faith is the knowledge that life has more to offer than the precarious place where you reside. Faith is the belief that healing is possible in all areas of your life.  Faith is the scary step that you take when your heart can take no more.

Faith is what boosts your soul and self-esteem.  It is the effort that you make to improve your personal strength and express that which holds you back.  Faith is the belief that the truth will prevail; it is a source of energy deep within to encourage and help others. It is a belief that when one door closes, another will open.

Faith is a belief in one’s self that you deserve and are capable of finding appreciation and validation.

Each breath is a confirmation of faith that it will be followed by another.  The sun will rise and the darkness will end. This is to have Faith.
