LIVING FOR LEZLIE

Faith...part 2

One thing you will learn is that faith can be tested, tested so much you may even lose it.


I have learned that faith is something that is harder to have than most can realize.


What does it mean to "keep the faith?" Well, it means to continue to believe in, trust, or support someone or something when it is difficult to do so. It is kind of like being a football fan, your team is 0-12 but, you keep the faith in them because you believe in them.


But keeping your faith in tough times, it is harder to do than say.


I lost absolutely all faith in everything when Lezlie was taken from me. It was absolutely the worst time in my life. I actually had moments that my faith was so not there that, I would probably not be here today if it wasn't for certain people. To this day, I will never be able to repay their support but, I thank God for them everyday.


But, I came out and now my faith is stronger. Everyday, I do what I can to keep her memory alive (I actually have a little help in that). I live because she would want me too. And like I said before, I do feel guilty at times for happiness but, I know she would be so upset if she knew I was sulking.


Continue to grieve. That is another way to keep your faith and make it stronger. Yes, you have to acknowledge your reality. Cry, yell, whatever it takes but it is real, your grieve is real.


Always be true to yourself. Remember that your faith will come back. Once it does, it'll make you stronger.


Always focus on the positive in your life. Yes, difficult situations can test your faith but, always look for anything encouraging.


Your faith is always stronger when you know what to expect and sometimes, you have to take chances even if you don't know the outcome. It is like taking the first step when you don't even see the staircase.


When sickness comes to someone you love, keep your faith. Believe. God will not fail you even though you feel at times he has. Yes, I felt he failed me and until I am standing face to face - then he will tell me the answer to my question, he will give me my why.


I apologize if anything is repetitive at times but sometimes, I feel the need to speak on things more than once. More for my own benefit than I realize.


Psalm 139:32 "Search me, GOD, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts."

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
