Faith

 


"DOUBT IS A PAIN TOO LONELY TO KNOW THAT FAITH IS HIS TWIN BROTHER"............Khalil Gibran

Stop a moment and really ponder this simple phrase.

We know that lightness and darkness cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

 "Somewhere in your quest for spiritual knowledge, there is that 'leap of faith,' as the philosophers call it. It is the moment when you have gone to the edge of the light and stepped into the darkness to discover that the way is lighted ahead for just a footstep or two."—Boyd K. Packer

Faith IS an exercise.  Though my faith "muscles" have atrophied as of late, I will get up each new day and have the goal to exercise them, to bring those muscles to a state of being chiseled and honed, a spiritual 6 pack if you will.  I've got to "go for the burn"; no pain - no gain.  You get the picture!
