Faith and reason

" Faith is a belief in something for which we have no evidence and faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods."

Faith and reason are not necessarily at odds. As multiple facets of who we are, they often work to support each other. Faith may expand the boundaries of reason when it spurs us to try
something new or bring hope to a disheartening moment. Reason sees the tangible fruit of faith and accepts that new reality as sound.

When reality is tested and our emotions waver, faith step in to remind us that our belief is reasonable and worth retaining. Faith and reason become an inseparable team.

I realize I need both faith and reason in all growth and challenge.
