Fear or Faith

“The answer has to do with the quality of faith rather than it’s quantity.” – 12&12

When I’m talking to anyone uncomfortable with the idea of God about this line, I suggest they look at one non-religious definition of faith in Webster’s dictionary: ‘complete trust’. But what am I trusting? I trust things that have proven to work for me. I believe we are either in fear or faith. Fear says “OMG, this is terrible”. Faith says “Seems bad but this is ok. In fact it will make you stronger.” Today my faith is in trusting that second set of words when I am upset. And when I do, where I was really unhappy just a moment earlier, once again, ILML!
