sometimes when things get tough one must think things would get better.
Have any of you ever heard thins get bad before they get better. this is so true.
When you are in a bad situation thinks things happen fo a reason. Think things over and think of wht it has taought you. And you will see. That it had to happen in order to make you smarter and srtonger. All you need is faith in yourslef and things will get better.

I am Wiccan, and have faith in nature, from which we came. Faith is what gets us through some of the hardest events of our lives.

You should have faith in something, even if it's your dog, at least you have faith in something!

Faith in a dog? Can't say I believe that would be appropriate or uplifting to me in any way. Hopefully that was said in jest. The only faith I can see as valid is faith in The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To feel confident in yourself because you know God is guiding you and standing with you through it all is necessary…but our faith should only be in Him. We can do nothing in and of ourselves…only through His grace and mercy.

We receive peace and comfort and all the tools we need to endure, but the faith must be placed in Him. We receive strength through the knowledge that He is with us every step of the way.

God never promised our lives would be simple or easy or always the way we would have them to be, but He did promise to always be there for us…never leave us or forsake us.

Of course, Lady Di, it was a joke!

I think this is a wonderful world, that we can all worship as we like, and not be looked down upon, or persecuted because we believe differently!

That is right it does not matter what different beliefs one has has long as they have faith in themselves.

I have said so many times"if you have faith as small as a mustard seed…" I am known as the "mustard seed lady". lol But really, when I find I cannot go another day , hour, or minute, I talk to God and give my problems to him. He has never let me down. I tell God I have done all I can and now you need to take things over because there is nothing I can't do if you are with me. Keep the faith. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Hashem led my people out of Egypt, and he still guides us today. It does take more than faith in yourself, it takes the Almighty to guide you too.

hello,I hope things are looking up for you these days.You are right about faith.Faith is the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not yet seen,to have faith is to believe circumstances or anything you are hoping for will come to pass,faith is pleasing to God it shows Him our dependence and need for Him to be in our lives.My faith rests in Jesus and God his Father,He is concerned about every aspect of our lives, the big and the small things.I can't think that I have any faith that will profit me or change my circumstances without giving God the credit and glory for it.Thanks for reminding me of all the times bad things came my way and I put my faith in Him and watched as He changed things as only He can do.have a blessed day.

Not faith in yourself, faith in God that He will bring you through the trials and tribulations and you will learn the lessons He wanted you to learn and live by.

that is true you need faith in God. but having faith in God will help you gian faith in yourself. Everyone has to have faith in themselfs in order to get passed what they are going through. god wants you to have faith in youself.
