Reading & Pondering Today 3-30

“On Faith

My heart beats, my lungs breathe, my ears hear, my hair grows. And I don’t have to make them work—they just do. Planets revolve around the sun, seeds become flowers, embryos become babies, and with no help from me. Their movement is built into a natural system. I am an integral part of that system, too. I can let my life be directed by the same force that makes flowers grow—or I can do it myself.

To trust in the force that moves the universe is faith. Faith isn’t blind, it’s visionary.

Faith is believing that the universe is on my side, and that the universe knows what it’s doing.

Faith is a psychological awareness of an unfolding force for good, constantly at work in all dimensions. My attempt to direct this force only interferes with it. My willingness to relax into it allows it to work on my behalf.

Without faith, I’m frantically trying to control what it is not my business to control, and fix what it is not in my power to fix. What I’m trying to control is much better off without me, and what I’m trying to fix can’t be “fixed by me anyway. Without faith, I’m wasting time.”

Williamson, Marianne.
