Faith is believing in something when it is completely out of your control. You can have faith in a teammate, and believe in them to make a big play when it’s necessary. You can have faith in a friend, and trust that they will be there for you when you are in need. You can have faith in a role model, and believe that the advice they have given you is good. Finally, you can have faith in God, and trust that he is leading you to something important. Faith is a big part of my life. There are many things in my life that I cannot control, so I need to trust in God to be there for me and provide me with the things I need to live the life he wants me to live. God has a plan for each and every person on this planet, and I don’t plan on straying away from what he wants me to do. “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit”(Jeremiah 17:7-8). As long as I trust God, I have nothing to worry about. Having faith makes everything in life easier. It relieves stress, it makes one feel as if they are safe, and it allows on to relax and trust that there is someone looking out for them, even when it feels like no one is. Faith allows those who feel like they are undesired to have a sense of being loved.
