July 1, 2015, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…and Faith

By Darrell Gurney | Blog

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.” –Saint Augustine

Bringing anything about from nothing, from simple formulation or concept, takes a lot of muscle…whether it be a new career, a company, a piece of art, or even an independent country.

One of those muscles is declaration, the saying of what shall be, no matter what.

That alone takes a rigorous determination, in a world that gives you any and every reason why not [whatever you declared].

Another of the most rigorously worked muscles of creation is faith.

Though we might wish we had a whole reservoir of it already in store, we notice the dearth and must generate it on the spot. It doesn’t come without working the muscle, and easy times require no faith.

It’s been said that only infinite patience yields immediate results and, when it comes down to it, all the perfect planning in the world won’t be what gets us through the eye of the needle.

But seeing [whatever you declared] coming about in the midst of non-evidence…there’s the muscle needing a rub.

Got faith?

“Faith is permitting ourselves to be seized by the things we do not see.” –Martin Luther
