I don't know where I would be if not for...
The truth is, before 2020, I thought this.
Now that it is the year 2020, I certainly think this with exclamation points:
I don't know where I would be if not for... my faith.
There is nothing solid, or lasting, in the world to hold onto. Everything in this world depends on something to stand.
If I were to depend on myself, I would be in deep, deep trouble. After all, I make mistakes. I make them every day. I struggle. I have no heaven or hell to offer anyone, least of all myself. I seem to always lead myself astray. So, depending on myself is futile.
However, my faith is not of this world. My faith stretches time and place. My faith is stronger than all emotions. My faith is true and is Truth.
My faith is the only hope I have.
My faith is lasting, for it is eternal.
My faith gives my life meaning and purpose.
My faith stands when no one and nothing else can.
My faith is beyond this world, space, and time.
My faith is not controlled by anyone or anything.
Faith is the only thing that really works. Everything else is broken. If it were not for my faith, I would have fallen apart at the seams decades ago, but it is even more true this year, in the year of 2020.
It does not matter how many challenges or storms there are in my life, I can and will stand and will not be blown over by circumstances or people.
The secret for living the best life possible is living a life of faith.
If you want to know about the faith that I have, add a comment at the end of any blog post, or add a comment in the comment form at the bottom right of this blog.
Faith is what we all need more of this year.
