A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing. A man of courage is also full of faith. All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired. As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit. Be a sinner and sin strongly, but more strongly have faith and rejoice in Christ. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother. Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith. Faith and doubt both are needed - not as antagonists, but working side by side to take us around the unknown curve. Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them. Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand. Faith in oneself is the best and safest course. Faith indeed tells what the senses do not tell, but not the contrary of what they see. It is above them and not contrary to them. Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof. Faith is a passionate intuition. Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation. Faith is not contrary to reason. Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into. Faith is reason grown courageous.
