The Internal Struggle to Determine the True Believer

24 May

It’s easy to believe when everything is going well; however, when things become difficult your faith will be tested, not by a higher power, but by an internal struggle within yourself.

One self states, “I will continue to believe even though it appears as if everything I desire is falling apart because my faith will sustain me through this difficult time.”

And the other self says, “I should just take a more practical approach to life and believe only in what I can see because nothing is working and nothing is happening.”

One assumes everything will work out even if she can’t yet see what she believes.  Her faith in herself, the power she believes in, and that life is working in her favor helps her thrive in the darkest of times.  She trusts that any road blocks are teaching her important lessons.

The other one is disheartened, distraught, and discouraged.  She is tired of not seeing any results.  The path has become too much to bear and she is drained emotionally.  And another obstacle standing between her and her dreams only deters her from continuing to believe.

Both want validation but go about achieving it in different ways.  The effort to thrive and push forward by both can be exhausting.

Either there are no accidents and everything happens for a reason or everything is just a coincidence without meaning or purpose.

Either some things are meant to be or you just get what you get.

Either you believe or you don’t.  As always the choice is yours.

“Am I a faith filled believer or am I a practical believer?”

Who will triumph?

Or can they reach a compromise?

I need some quiet so peace befalls upon them so I can just be.
