The easiest way I can describe the faith that I hope to have and exercise is by setting all logic and extreme emotion aside and simply trusting that everything is going to be okay. Trusting that everything is as it should be.
For lent, it was really important to do something different. I wanted to renew my faith and it dawned on me that I could do that by focusing on what seemed least natural to do. If you want to know how to develop your faith, think of just 2 people, situations, or emotions in your life that are constantly causing you grief, anxiety, or concern. Follow your brain activity into a certain subject. This is where you can work. Instead of constantly trying to figure out how you can fix it, give it to God. Trust that in due time, he will reveal what he has planned for this ordeal.
Every time I have begun to feel flustered and I begin to think about how to control the situation, I stop and give it up to God. I speak to him about what I wish was different, but also, I offer acceptance that it is not.
Concern by concern, this practice allows us to develops faith and trust. Of course, having faith doesn’t mean things will go your way, but it means you may finally trust that it’ll be fine if it goes His way.
