Faith… In religious circles, we throw that word around, as if we all have it all figured out and our lives are perfect. We encourage people to ‘keep the faith,’ but, come on, what does that mean? We sound like God is our everything, don’t we? Oh, and then there is the question we all ask when we are alone or tired – “How do we make this easier?” “Am I doing it all right?” and “What is the formula for a great walk with God?”
I am just enjoying the night, it is beautiful out. I am sitting straight up, legs crossed under me (because this is the only way to sit for perfect focusing, right?), sipping my black coffee. My computer is in front of me and my journal is open on the table beside me. For the first time in weeks, I want to write. So I shall.
Most of us have asked this question lately. In the last few months, we have had violence and crime rock our nation, with the hate crimes/terrorist attacks against the gay community, shootings and bombings around the world, the protests and riots from the racial divisions in our country. Even as I was writing this, there was another terrorist attack that took the lives of many innocent people. I can see where this question is coming from, actually, I have been wondering this too.
