Thursday 9/9/10 - "FAITH AND REASON" - Theme Thursday-Reason



When I am at the intersection of Faith and Reason, the following is true.

When reason has finally gained control over my emotional nature, things get better.
However, reason will carry me only so far and eventually fails me.
I come to the limit of my own power to think things through and arrive at a place of powerlessness....the human condition.

When faith is allowed entry into my soul, things also get better.
Even when that faith is as small as a mustard seed - if I can but hold on to it, it will never fail me.
I find a power greater than my own waiting just beyond my limited human reasoning....waiting to provide all the power I need.

For me, faith trumps reason every time.

For me too, it's interesting how for me faith and love are so intertwined together...I enjoy reason, but somehow my faith has to get me there...
Wonderful post and just what I needed to read today!
Much love

I prayed for you...even though I have a mustard seed for faith...okay maybe it's getting a little bigger than that these days. Thank you for giving me something to pray about. Love, Suzy
