We all have been through negative and positive experiences, but they have shaped us for the better. Having survived them, our outlook of life might have changed. The underlying factor that allows us all to overcome difficult times is the force of faith. Faith is the complete trust in a higher power and the unknown future. Having faith allows you to gain these benefits:
1. Faith can provide inner strength.
With faith, you feel as though you are not alone.
2. Faith teaches you give back and serve the less fortunate.
Helping others in anyway will positively impact your life for the better.
3. Faith allows you to be selfless and put others first.
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
4. Faith can help you to discover your purpose in life.
Passion and daily action can lead to a purposeful life. If you don’t have passion or daily action, you are missing the drive to living a meaningful life.
5. Faith helps you overcome stress, anxiety, and fear.
It gives you a sense of tranquility while living in a dangerous world.
6. Faith can be the pathway to finding solutions.
With so many variables and unknowns, faith helps us have patience, understanding, and optimism- qualities that lead to productive solutions.
7. Faith gives you a sense of hope.
Sometimes we feel lost, but faith helps us stay anchored knowing that everything will be okay.
8. Faith is a source of peace and joy.
Eternal peace can be achieved by spreading happiness and love to those around you.
9. Faith will help you get through the trials of life.
Although challenges arise, there is nothing you can’t handle with the power of unwavering faith.
10. Faith can make you a better person.
Spirituality can help you understand and highlight your qualities through self-actualization. Personal reflection and meditation through prayer will help you see life in its entirety.
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
