Faith – Confident belief. Trust. (American Heritage Dictionary)
Doing – To perform or execute. To fulfill; complete. To bring about. To put into action. (American Heritage Dictionary)
Our faith is tested many times. We come out stronger or confused, in doubt, and/or unable to advance. When we want or need to do something we’ve planned, and we proceed with confident caution, that is the easy way. However, many times we have to proceed by faith, not knowing if the best plan that we made will work; that is, if the circumstances permitted planning. Otherwise, we must push through confusion, doubt, and even chaos, with only a little light ahead of us, barely visible – our bit of faith illuminating the way. We must do by faith.
Becoming petrified by the fear that confusion and chaos bring will hinder advance and growth. We may become stuck or a situation will turn worse. It is best to do by faith than succumb to fear. In any case life goes on, for better or for worse. When in doubt, act in faith.
