A Definition

Faith is hanging on when it just ain't possible to hang on one second longer.

Faith is believing that there is good out there no matter how much rotten junk you get hurled at you.

Faith is smiling and doing for others when then are jerks or don't even care that you're breathing but you do it anyway.

Faith is knowing (not just believing) that you are never (never) all alone. No matter how tangibly black life gets, you are not by yourself.

Faith is a working verb most of the time. It's a horrific workout. It's a merciless taskmaster and it is worth every single second you put into it.

EVERY single second you put into it.

What a wonderful peaceful feeling when you can apply that kind of faith in your life! It is sort of a life adventure. Sometimes you're going to step in the poop but if you look up you find the ripened fruits on the vine!

How strange it was to find your post today because it replicates my plans for a future post (coming soon)once we get underway of our "stepping out in faith" year!

Love you,girl!
