Faith: As my left and right brain experience a great back and forth game of mental volleyball, the best definition they seem to agree upon is this:

'Trusting in what you can't see, regardless of what you can see'.

Faith comes from a steadfast belief in what we feel, not in what we see. In many cases, we have no evidence to support what we feel, because the evidence we search for does not exist. Therefore proof is needless and in fact won't exist in a life built on faith.

Besides evidence, another word that plays a role in faith is reason. To operate on faith, one merely has to shut the eye of reason, limiting the effects of fear. Fear causes doubt, and doubt undermines the very foundation faith was built upon. Faith is bigger than fear!

  • I quite agree. My faith keeps me going. It is always with me like PD. It is there when I wake, when I go to sleep. It is constant and as long as I have that it gives me the strength to face each day.

  • I appreciate what you have both written. My faith has turned my life around, more than once.

    I actually feel I have gotten better because of my faith. I have no promise that PD will not begin to advance, but am enjoying the "recession" for the time being.

    Don’t know how I would be where I am without the Lord.

  • faith is smething that comes from the heart there are no words that can describe faith

  • Here is a little poem I wrote

    Life is a journey

    With its ups and downs

    We don't always appreciate

    The journey we are on

    And live life to the fullest

    Always rushing around

    Never taking the time

    To embrace the beauty of it

    Taking good health for granted

    Until one day

    You have PD

    Fighting a battle

    Each day

    Trying to cope

    But you cannot

    Give up hope

    Without faith

    It can't be done

    Faith is my strength

    That keeps me pushing on.
