faith

Faith is trust, hope and belief in the goodness, trustworthiness or reliability of a person, concept or entity.

 So, these days I find myself struggling with fears.  Not faith, I think my faith is strong, or is it?
While browsing in a book store, looking for a book from Joyce Meyer...I found myself flipping through pages and found this quote in a book.
"Feed your fears and your faith will starve"
I really did relate to those words, that is exactly how I am feeling...I am doing that.
I am learning, to live without as many fears, but as I see some changes with my parents, and they are so far from me...well some days the fears and what-ifs just feel like they will swallow me.  I worry about them so much, and I TRY to stay in the moment and the here and now and not project forward.  It is better...but I am still practicing this, and looking for guidance as to how to achieve it.  I know it must come from within...

Another group of words I saw hit me this weekend, they are:
"I am not be where I want to be, but I am not where I once was either"... so true.

  1. So very true Kathy...feed those fears and your faith will starve. Faith is so very important because we have faith everyday of our lives. If we didn't have faith there would be no reason to hope. Just remember your heart is in the right place, you are doing what you can and if you are needed you will be there xoxoxox

  2. Fear is such a facet of being human...even when we have conquered our fears over "something" we can still have that sense of fear about other things. I've found that having a great deal of faith helps me to conquer or at least quiet those fears when they make an appearance. And I really like that last quote!

  3. Love that quote, so nice of you to stop by.
    You are so right, the fear is what we should fear, everything else is out of our hands.
