“Faith is higher and more spiritual than belief. It is a chrysalis state of human thought, in which spiritual evidence, contradicting the testimony of material sense, begins to appear, and Truth, the ever-present, is becoming understood.” (Science and Health, page 297)
Faith is a beautiful thing. It is the entryway to a heavenly perspective, the unfurling of wondrous reality in the place of limits, doubts, fears, discord.
This faith is ours to claim and feel. Give yourself permission to take your belief in Truth, God, good, to an even more spiritual level. Allow yourself to bask in that protected space of transformation, that chrysalis thought which is ready to be convinced that there is something better than a small and challenging life. Let that faith in Love, the power of goodness, and in yourself as God’s own child and image, settle into conviction.
This sweet experience of simple childlike trust, without the need to argue, instructs us into a better understanding of Life as it really is. We begin to see what seem like miracles to the faithless human sense, but which only feel just right and natural from our higher standpoint.
Truth is becoming understood. Faith guides us there. You are not a doubter or a skeptic. You have faith because you are everything God made you to be—wise, loving, lovable, perceptive, and a willing receiver of God’s own grace lovingly revealed.
