“When you have come to the edge..and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, Faith is knowing…there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught how to fly.” Patrick Overton

When life’s circumstances have got you down it is time to reach out and time to reach up. While it is impossible to figure out the real reason why things are happening and specifically why things are happening to you and the world around you, the one constant that you can rely on is faith. When times are good – we often don’t pose the “why me” question; but when times are not so good, we do.

Faith focuses our attention. Faith changes our perspective. Faith soothes our feelings of powerlessness. Faith provides a safety net to stop the free fall. In times of need, you are not alone; faith can build a bridge to see you through. Faith can help you to overcome difficult obstacles. Faith takes practice, so there is no better time to get started than right now.

Three- Step Call to Action:

1. Reach out for help and reconnect with your faith.
2. Stay with it and be patient. Profound faith will soften your stance.
3. Rejoice for your blessings and assess your troubles in an altered perspective.
