You have to have faith, right? We’ve all heard that. But what is it that you have faith in? Yourself? God? The Divine? The Universe? Your family? Friends? Co-workers or business associates? Maybe all of the above? Or for some, none of the above. Which is disheartening. Faith is a powerful force. And I believe that we need to use our power for good. Therefore a lack of faith or faith in lack, serves no purpose.

You’re going to invest your energy in something, so why not invest it positively? Why not have faith in yourself and know that somehow, when you “keep the faith,” things work out. You have to let go of the details sometimes, and allow things to flow. And, maybe, you have to ask for a little help. That can be difficult to do, yet I find that once I remember that I really can’t do everything by myself anyway, and I reach out for a little assistance, things get better immediately.

I’ve done that lately and I’ve experienced a renewed faith because of it. And in this case, it was faith in me. But I can’t really say that it is just in me, because of my beliefs, it’s also a renewed faith in knowing that the Universe has a way of working things out. And the people I have in my life. I’m always cared for and I’m reminded of what the Rolling Stones told us, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, well you might find you get what you need.”

And so, with a renewed faith, I’m venturing forward. I don’t have all the answers and I certainly still have lots of questions. But I have faith that all is as it should be and that includes me.
