Hope and Faith.
“You can’t go forcing something if it’s just not right.” – Green Day
At times, I wish I had half the faith my brother does. Or that of other family and friends. Or that so many around the diabetes online community and chronic illness communities do.
Hope is one thing, faith is another. Hope is the feeling that events will turn out for the best, faith is belief and trust that they will.
This summer has been rough – not only personally, but on a greater scale of all the bad news coming out of Colorado, this adopted state of mine.
Prayer has been an option for me as I have navigated some rough waters the past three years or so. I can find comfort in prayer at times like these, I can find hope in prayer at times like these. To grasp faith? That seems out of reach for me.
Does prayer mean anything without a strong faith behind it? Is it meant for those only seeking comfort and a sense of hope? Does it mean anything if church does not feel right?
