I had come to a point in my life where I just wasn't happy. Why couldn't I find a fulfilling life? A fulfilling job? A fulfilling purpose? I purchased the FAITH necklace for myself as a reminder to have faith. Even though I may not know where my life is going, or how I will get there, I felt a need to have faith that God knows my future, and I'm exactly where I need to be right now.
Anyhow, after some time I felt at peace. I felt at peace knowing that faith is what will get me through life. I have faith that my life has purpose if I continue to seek what interests me and not settle. I felt like I had embraced my word.
About this time, I had been talking to one of my very best friends. She's always been a strong person of faith, one who I admire and aspire to be more like. She broke the devastating news that she and her husband were divorcing after more than ten years of marriage.
It seemed that her life, as she knew it and planned it, was crumbling before her. In speaking to her, I could tell she was trying to continue to trust God, but her faith was wavering. After talking to her, I felt it was time to pass my word on. I had embraced FAITH, and now it was time share the reminder with my dear friend.
I sent it to her as a physical reminder of the faith we must have in something bigger. Life may be hard at times, but trusting God and having Faith that our experiences will make us into the person we need to be is what can help us be at peace.
