Faith

Victim and I were IMing today and I asked a question and the conversation went something like this:

Me: When does accepting the things that aren't worth having become a lie?
*Why do we ask questions we know the answer to..maybe we aren't ready to accept it

Victim: When you realize it.

Me: Well...what about faith? When can your faith be misleading you? You know, creating a false hope, making you believe something that is not necessary true. Basically, when does faith become a lie?

Victim: It doesn't, to the person that believes, it's infallible.

Me: This is true...so I guess we can believe a lie and think it's the complete truth, because in our minds it's no way it can be wrong.

Victim:Basically.

I've come to the conclusion, that we all have believe a lie to get us through. We need to believe that our ideal job, situtation, companion, etc. passed us by because there is something greater or that things were simply not meant to be. What about those things that we felt we desperately needed, but didn't receive and still feel the consequences of it to this day. What if we haven't seen those "better" things yet, or seen the good in it yet. What do you do? You believe...b/c that's all you have. You take comfort in your faith, right? It is infallible, correct? The bible says "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" How do we know that our heart isn't deceiving us to believe in faith? We don't know because "who can know it?" All we have is faith, either you believe or you don't.

My choice is to believe. I have to believe that things will work for my good. Some how, some way...it's working. What's faith if you can see it? Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. It's like, faith is our great asset, yet an ever bigger liability.

What do you think about this?

*Just was having a little introspective moment and I thought I would share it.

* I went to a Def Poetry Jam show last year and a lady name Stacyann chin spoke and she did a poem about believing in things...it spoke volumes to me.

Nice Blog!!! It looks like you've spent a fair amount of time setting it up and keeping the content fresh. I'll be sure to come back.

I have a online dating blog. It pretty much covers dating related stuff.

Thanks again and keep up the good work.
