B – Belief

Faith

Hi all.  I know it’s been too long.  I need a kick start of some kind.  So this is my kick start.  I saw a writing prompt that challenged you to write every day for 26 days.  One day for each letter of the alphabet.  Well, this is my version of that challenge.  This is a bit on the personal side, but I needed to start somewhere!  

Belief

Meaning: Confidence, faith, trust.  An opinion or conviction.

I don’t normally listen to the Christian music stations.  But I was scanning through the radio stations one day recently, looking for something that sounded good.  Where I stopped had a light rock sound and I liked it.  I was mindlessly humming along, digging the music.  I realized after several songs that it was a Christian station.

I was surprised.  But I found myself returning to this station over and over again over the next few days.  I was enjoying the upbeat, positive tone of the music.

Then a song came on that hit me like a ton of bricks.  You know, that “aha moment”, or when the light bulb finally comes on?  This was like that.

I don’t know the name of the song; I’ve only heard it twice.  But the message was clear.  The line in the song that I DO remember that really hit home was this:  “Don’t hold on, just be held.”

What I have been doing most of my life, is trying to figure it out.  I’ve always questioned: why am I here?  What does the future hold for me?  Did I move to “X, Y or Z” for a reason?  If so, what??

Instead of just enjoying the ride, I questioned why I was on the Ferris wheel to begin with.

My belief is exactly where I should have turned for the answers.  Instead of “holding on” to the questions, I should have  let myself “be held”.

It’s ok to just let it go sometimes.  I know we need to help ourselves.  But there are times when we just need to let it go, be held and turn it over to a Higher Power.

Taking my own advice is not always easy.  But I’m going to try.  Starting this weekend, I am taking off on a little adventure.  It’s something I’ve never done before.  While doing this, I am going to be sure to take in the sights and sounds from the top of the Ferris wheel!

    So many times we try to be better, to change our own perception BUT the reality is that we only need to be willing to change. God will do the rest for us. He makes us better.
