We know within ourselves that we can do it. All we need is a little push and a lot of faith
Welcome to the 23rd episode of Giving Back Insights, my Thursday solo show where I talk about how our guests and their charities serve others, to explore actions each of can take to make a difference in people’s lives and to share. Today I’m talking about Faith! Listen to today’s episode and don’t forget to give your feedback and valuable comment. Enjoy!
I remember many years ago being at a pool with my son Tyler, him wanting to jump in and join his big brother. It scared him, waving for him to jump in with my arms outstretched. He jumped, it was a literal leap of faith that I would take care of him.
Taking a leap into the unknown. Was it bigger for him, taking the leap? Or for me, that he trusted me?
Faith for the spiritual. Is there a difference from faith for the religious? Acts of love for others is what I see is faith in action. So many of our guests have faced hardship and obstacles on their path to doing something great for others.
Edward Teller on faith: “When you get to the end of all the light you know and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.”
Karen Blessen, 29 Pieces, doing enormous good to stop the violence. Sometimes it’s hard, and she keeps going.
Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls, bringing shoes where they’re needed. Washing the feet for those he serves, to sustain him.
Pastor Michael Moore, talking about reconciling temptation to action. Are your actions reflecting your beliefs?
What are YOU doing that reflects your faith?
Don’t be stingy with your love. Always err on the side of love and kindness.
Love & Gratitude
