The Winds Of Faith

It is time to put our faith in American core values to the test. Life is always good when things are going just the way we want them to--- good job, happy and healthy family, good schools, a government to protect us, and the ultimate gift---the pursuit of happiness. These are the just part of the undeniable rights fought for and bequeathed to us by our founding fathers--- and the people that died for these rights. With these established principals that these honored American heroes left behind them, we can lead the good life that for some reason we feel we are entitled to. With these principals in place, it should be easy to keep the faith. So now is the time in American history to ask the question---why are we loosing the faith we need to sustain us? Life is easy when life is good, living on top of the mountain of money,success, and pretty.

At the present time in America our faith is being put to the test every day. We are now living in the valley of dwindling faith, hope, a way out, and are facing great trials and tribulations. Right now our faith in America and her need for our help is being tested to the max. Are we ready to make the right choices that will bring us to realize that every one of us must become a piece of the solution to help us face and erase this feeling of doubt and hopelessness? Will we allow this lack of faith that seems to slowly be diluting our understanding of the urgency to participate, to blind us to the realization that the time is now?

Let us begin to dig deep inside of ourselves to find this faith that will sustain us and our great nation, even when we are being tested in the valley of hard times. Let us build a stairway of faith, peace and love for God,and one another,  We must put these God-given principles on our shoulders and rise to the top of that mountain and let us build bridges of faith, peace, empathy,and love to get us to the  top. Only love, faith, and trust can build a long lasting and strong bridge between our hearts. Once we arrive to the top of that mountain we will be able to move mountains together. This struggle is the only thing worth fighting for -- the only thing that will save us as a nation. Just look at what a colony of ants accomplishes every day with just a little mound of dirt. Faith is like the wind, you can't see it but you know it's there.

When we climb to the top of that mountain we may see God.
Maybe when we reach the top of our own mountain, we may realize that all the love we have been given, has been left just for us.
