Wordy Wednesday: Faith

Despite my gratitude for all the blessings I’ve seen in such a short amount of time, I’m the busiest and most stressed that I’ve ever been, and what I need more than anything right now is faith in myself to be the person that I know I can be and faith in God to give me the strength to become that person.

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”
– Saint Augustine
“To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.”
– Alan Watts
“Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into. Mahatma Gandhi
Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.”
– Saint Augustine
“Resist your fear; fear will never lead to you a positive end. Go for your faith and what you believe.”
– T. D. Jakes
“Faith gives you an inner strength and a sense of balance and perspective in life.”
– Gregory Peck
“There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
“Faith is a passionate intuition.”
– William Wordsworth
“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.”
– D. Elton Trueblood
“Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.”
– Oswald Chambers
“The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen.”
– Ralph Marston
He who has faith has… an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well – even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.
B. C. Forbes
“I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God’s help I shall succeed.”
– Vincent Van Gogh

“Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.”
– Martin Luther

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.”
– Henry Ward Beecher

“Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.”
– Michelangelo

“Seeds of faith are always within us; sometimes it takes a crisis to nourish and encourage their growth.”
– Susan L. Taylor

“Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.”
– Corazon Aquino

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs
  • Tbt to the time I searched every floor of union station for a Cinnabon then ended up paying $9 for the most disgusting steak and cheese I’ve ever encountered
  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
  • My sandwich a lil ugly just like me 😛
  • You, an idiot and a plebe: divided by politics
Us, scholars of noble upbringing: divided by Nicki Minaj vs cardi b
  • No matter what happens tonight, I don’t have to listen to/watch political ads for another year and a half and that’s something to drink to
  • I feel like God makes sure to plop a good sunset in front of me at least once a week so I don’t go postal
  • Friday I had ice cream for breakfast and ate pizza for lunch and dinner because I’m a woman in crisis but im gonna keep telling myself carb addiction beats meth addiction until I need those wheel chair shopping carts at the grocery store 🤷🏾‍♀️
