How to Keep Your Faith Soaring in these Trying Times?
Behind the dusk, a shadow of hope. In every pain, a new blessing. Behind the clouds, a silver lining. And behind the thorns, a stunning flower. Ernest Hemingway boldly said,“ We are all broken that’s how light gets in.”
In these trying times, it is quite hard to keep our faith soaring. Somehow, along the rough road of life’s journey we become faithless. May the following tips will make your faith burning through God’s grace flowing. Thomas Aquinas once said, “Faith has to do with things that are seen and hope for the things are not at hand.” God is our refuge and the source of our strength during this pandemic.
- Read God’s Word- The Bible.
The Bible is the perfect book that leads us to God. Its teaching is so much convincing. And every writer was inspired by the Holy Spirit. For the word of the Lord is right and true, he is faithful in all he does” (Psalm 33:4). May God’s word will be our source of hope in these challenging times.
- Know your Purpose.
We are all unique and born for a special purpose. God’s plan for us is beyond our grasp. We need not compare ourselves to other people because we are uniquely created for a very special purpose. Napoleon Hill once said, “ If you cannot do great things, do small things in a small way.” We can always make a difference in someone else lives. We are honed for a special purpose. And may this purpose will be fulfilled through God’s grace.
- Spread Kindness and Positivity.
Spreading good vibes in this hopeless situation is the best thing we could do while living. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “You cannot do a kindness too soon for you never know how soon it will be too late.” Helping others in need will give us peace and joy beyond compare.
- Forgive and Love your Enemies.
This might be the hardest thing we can ever do to those we considered to be our enemies. “Be kind and compassionate to one another just as God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32). We only have peace from within if we do not harbor grudges against our debtors. We must be free of some ill-feelings against our neighbors so that peace and joy reigns in our life.
- Do things you are Passionate About.
George Eliot said, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
If we do what really want is enough to enkindle real joy deep within us. Jen Welter said it well, “If we want to be successful in this world, you have to follow your passion, not a paycheck.” Our passion will boost our spirits and lightens our burdens in life. “ If we do it then everything will flow smoothly. This would make us hopeful in these trying times.
- Avoid the Worrying Habit.
Living in the present, forgetting our past conflicts and offer our future to God are the best things we need to do. Entrust everything to God. Because He knows exactly what is ahead of us. Corrie Ten Boom, said it well, “Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around the center of fear.” Thus, let us offer every little concern to God, to avoid this habit of worrying. Keep the Faith soaring my friend! And life becomes meaningful and worth living for.
