Faith By Regan Vig

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of “faith” means to have belief and trust in and loyalty to God, and also a firm belief in something for which there is no proof. The origin is Middle English, Anglo-French, and Latin. The first known use was in the 13th century.

According to me faith is having dependence on others, having confidence that good things will happen. Faith is having belief in things that you can’t necessarily see. It is to have loyalty to your one true god, and also to those around you.

To me, faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing, or the fulfillment of a promise from loyalty, or a devotion to a person. It is the assurance of things hoped for, and the belief of things not seen. To trust in things you can’t necessarily prove. Faith is believing what the bible says, no matter what things look like around you.

I believe that faith is a lot like duct tape, because it holds things together. Faith is the foundation that holds our lives together, much like duct tape does at times. Sitting in a chair for the first time is faith. You don’t know if it will hold you, but you have faith that it will.

According to my understanding, we build our faith by building our relationship with God. Once we understand that faith is trust, we are able to have a better understanding how faith works. Not only do you have to have faith in god, but those around you, and those that affect your everyday lives.

According to me disbelief is a contrast of faith. You must believe in order to receive. Faithlessness, dishonestly, disloyalty, doubt, are all synonyms of faith.

According to me faith is not blind, faith is not denying reality, faith is not wishful thinking or expecting something to happen. Having faith is not being jealous or envious of others. Faith isn’t worrying. Faith isn’t a feeling, it is a choice to trust.
