In my ordinary life, as I walked the way to holiness, my faith was shaken by so many obstacles that I almost abandoned my faith in God. I knew that all saint had their own history of how they dealt with their own obstacles and struggles. What made my story the same to them was I believed in common faith. And what made our story differ was how we look at our daily situation and how we dealt with it. I told you that even I, I never been excepted from obstacles and struggles. Thanks to the prayers of my beloved family and thanks for their encouragement to pray that I hold the faith until now. I have received the faith from other and it was right to hand it to others also. I believed in the connection of one another. Everything was connected to each other. And if this connection has vanished, life become imbalanced. That’s why I was trying to share the faith I have learned from the church. In order to acknowledge one’s faith, it must be practiced. To profess the faith, one must believe and one must witness through daily works. In order to say that one was a faithful, one must profess it.
I am witnessing to the faith by living on it and trying to hand it over to my family and other people. The beauty of believing is mirrored in one’s way of life. I am telling you that having faith in God, life change in different ways. It could make our life wonderful in the middle of uncertain circumstance. Having something you believe in earthly life changes everything. The way you look life and deal with it makes sense. It is important that you believe in something. And what makes everything wonderful is you are not alone. Our love for Jesus and for our neighbor impels us to speak to others about our faith. Each believer has a link in the great chain of believers. I cannot believe without being carried by the faith of others, and by my faith, I help to support others in the faith. One cannot be a believer if he doesn’t understand what he believes but sometimes it is easy to believe first in order to understand the faith. In words of St. Augustine, “I believe, in order to understand; and I understand, the better to believe.”
What is faith? It is a human act, a response to the invitation of God to human as his Father and Creator. In order to mature on one’s faith, one must study so he learns to nourish his faith. I am declaring my faith on this blog and communicate it to others. Life is wonderful when you have something you believe.
