Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see. You choose!

Quote by Bob Proctor

“Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see. You choose!” – Bob Proctor

It can be very difficult to have faith during uncertain times, when we don’t know how things will turn out.

Faith is much easier to feel when things are going well in our lives, but when there are upheavals and difficult times, faith often is replaced with fear.

Fear of the outcome. Fear of loss. Fear of not being able to get back up when knocked down.

I know. I’ve felt it.

I’ve been knocked down so badly I felt I didn’t deserve to breathe the air or to walk the earth.

I’ve also been able to turn my fears completely around and develop faith once more when I learned that I am loved, as is everyone on this planet.

Learning that I am loved was a huge pivotal point for me, for it is based on each of us being loved and cherished by God and the universe, and not based on our actions, abilities or skills.

Having had chronic Shingles for 10 years wasn’t a sign of my unworthiness, nor was my daughter’s IBS a sign that I was a bad mother or that she was being punished for my unworthiness. (Yes, I had experienced doctors and clergy telling me this.)

Losing our faith and developing fear is directly proportional to our feeling unworthy.

When we know we are indeed loved and are seen as worthy, we’re much more able to hold onto our faith, even through very difficult times, because we know that things are being worked out for our greater good, and that we will be given the help we need to get through it.

The difficulties aren’t there to punish us or to break us.

They’re storms which can carry us to different places in our lives and can develop within us new skills and strengths which wouldn’t have otherwise come out.

Incredible good can come from difficulties.

We can each grow into much more incredible versions of ourselves that we might have imagined!

Fear not, you are indeed loved and cherished! Hold onto this thought!

Blessing!,

  1. Fear has been my core default much of my life and faith has been a slow building and healing process. It is a powerful experience and you are so right about our self -worth tied to this. It was very unexpected for me to discover that 🙂

  2. I didn’t realize that until I was demolished emotionally and spiritually by the last church I had been in. The rebuild was slow and difficult because I had to face a lot of shadows which had entered my life. It’s strange how people get criticized for losing faith or for not having enough faith, but churches haven’t really looked at what’s going on inside of people. Wrong assumptions are made, judgements are proclaimed and then people suffer from those negative judgments.

  3. Yes, it’s sadly a fact. Just hoping to do my part to help people find the inner strength to pick up the pieces.
