Let us continue to believe in the pillars of love, faith and respect to continue on the path of spiritual connection. Discover in the following article the verses that will enlighten your day.
" In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" Psalm 56:4
Faith and hope are two fundamental elements in the spiritual life of any person, but especially in times of difficulty or crisis. They are like beacons that light the way, that guide us towards the light and give us the strength to move forward.
It is important to note that if we do not make a decision in times of crisis, the weight of our burdens can take us to places that are not constructive at all, feeling an unnecessary weight inside us. Fear will reign and darkness will guide our destiny.
In this sense, it is important to understand that faith is not something that can be explained with words, but something that is lived, felt and experienced on a daily basis. It is a divine gift that allows us to connect with the sacred, with the transcendental, with what gives us meaning and purpose in life.
"The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction." Proverbs 16:23
Hope, on the other hand, is the engine that drives us towards the future, towards the realization of our dreams and goals, towards the conquest of our own limitations and fears. It is a powerful feeling that helps us overcome adversity and find the meaning of life in the midst of darkness.
But how can we regain faith and hope when we feel discouraged, disoriented or lost in our own lives? The answer is simple: by drawing closer to God, experiencing his presence and love in our hearts.
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock." Matthew 7:24
The right time to approach the Lord's grace is now. We should not wait for things to change or get better to seek divine help. We must be courageous and encourage ourselves to experience His close presence every day, in every moment of our lives.
If we do so, we will notice how all the challenges we are going through will become clearer and resolved little by little, with patience and heavenly wisdom.
The Lord watches us and guides us from on high, He knows us and listens attentively when we are in prayer. His mercy will give us the necessary tools to overcome and win the battles of life.
"Now Naaman was commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the Lord had given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy. Now bands of raiders from Aram had gone out and had taken captive a young girl from Israel, and she served Naaman’s wife. She said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy." 2 Kings 5:1-3
It is true that sometimes the solutions we hope for are slow in coming, or do not come at the time we think is right. In those cases, it is important to remember that the Lord's timing is perfect, though different from what we as mere mortals can understand. The Lord has already heard our pleas and stands by our side until the resolution of the conflict or difficult instance we are going through.
Therefore, we should not let ourselves marvel at the blessings that God the Father gives us every day, because that is where much of the strength we need to move forward is nourished. If we are able to prioritize the path and trust in the Heavenly Father, we will be enabling a space that was relegated and postponed for different reasons.
We will find ourselves again on this path of hope and faith deposited in the Savior, the only one who can guide us back to his destiny of eternal life in the Temple of Heaven.
