Faith is too often stuck into the wrong category. It's defined incorrectly as a set of strict rules and normalcies, and placed alongside boredom and regularity. Most people have very set views of the exactness of following a divine being, which is valid, but I think sometimes it can lead to missing out on the beauty of true faith.
Faith is defined as complete trust and confidence in something or someone. The words confidence and trust are a bold call to adventure. It says that even if something is a hesitation, there is a confidence pushing us to new limits. Faith expands our comfort zone. It calls us to jump into cold waters and climb the tallest mountains, having trust that holds us steady the whole time.
Having faith is a journey, and everyone's faith journey is different. This makes for the best adventure stories, where people have been swayed and stirred by something big, and have been compelled to take brave and exciting steps towards their dreams and towards the calling God has set in their souls. It makes the small moments incredibly valuable and it causes big moments to warm up our souls. Faith journeys connect people to love and bravery. They make way for more bold living, and they spice up people's lives.
Letting go and letting the trust you have in the Maker direct your steps is a beautiful thing. Faith is a constant adventure between your soul and God's, where new steps are always being taken, and always being celebrated. It's like a brand new hike every day, winding through valleys and making way up inclines. It's daring and exciting and, and it's a journey that is constantly growing.
Faith is exciting and brave and fierce.
Faith is like running through a meadow, free and bold.
It doesn't quiver when met with obstacles and it doesn't fall down when tested.
It gives you breath and joy and laughter.
It's letting go and diving into trusting a divine Creator.
It's making room for new heights.
It's climbing and leaping and trailblazing.
It's gorgeous and freeing.
It's an absolutely beautiful adventure.
