I don’t believe in God as our creator. I don’t believe in Jesus as our saviour. I don’t believe in Heaven for the good, nor Hell for the bad. But I do have faith. I believe in an afterlife, because I like to think that the people I’ve lost are living among the stars. I believe in the science that will fix my father’s heart. I believe in miracles, destiny, and the fate that brings two people together. I believe in love, although that has not always been the case. I believe in the “gut instinct”, because only you know what is right and what is wrong for you. I believe in equality for all, because the bible is full of holes. I believe that bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to people who have done bad. I believe that things can be forgiven, things can be forgotten, but rarely both. And I believe in happy endings, because no matter how awful things can get or how scared you are for the outcome, you have it in you to make it through anything.
I have always thought that it took amazing strength to have faith, but what I’m learning is that more importantly… you should have faith in that which gives you strength.
