Faith Is Not An Option For Me, It Just Is!

Faith is a funny thing, you either have it or you don't. I don't know how or even when I developed a deep faith or how it stays with me in times of great struggle, I guess I was just born with it, a gift of sorts! I am a person who always tries to see the goodness, the faith in people, even though it often leaves me very vulnerable and exposed. I have been hurt greatly by people and humbled by events in my life, but I can honestly say that my faith has never left me. It may have wavered a bit, whose doesn't, but it is always at the center of who I am and who I will always be. Kindness, compassion, love, and forgiveness for our fellow human beings is essential to faith, because really, don't we want people to see the good in us, to have compassion for are missteps, be filled with love for us, and forgive us for the things that we are truly sorry for! Faith is not an option for me, having faith in myself and others is just who I am! Thanks Duo for the inspiration! Karen
