The Mystery Of Faith
Faith is a strong play and an interest to many, with Jupiter and Neptune in their own signs.
I'm preparing for the class I teach with my husband. We have 23 kids, 10-12 years old.
I have to teach them what the "mystery of faith" is tomorrow. It's a... uh... broad concept, ethereal to be sure.
What do you think about the mystery of faith, provided you see some mystery in it?
It feels to me that faith is the answer to the mystery.
My husband and I went to a mystery of faith class a couple of years ago. I loved it. I have Jupiter in Sag. It's total confidence in what is unseen. I believe wholeheartedly with faith miracles can be achieved.
I think it begins for me with Matthew 18:1-6 were Jesus talks about how we must become as children. Stripped back to our core self we feel no disconnect, therefore, there is no mystery to faith because every step and breath is an act of connection to all that is. Backed up by 2 Corinthians chapter 5:6-7 where it speaks of us walking by faith, not by sight.
The mystery of faith is believing in something you can't see or touch. Its something you feel and something that you need to seek out before it is revealed to you. I've always had faith in God, but in my younger days I didn't have the depth of understanding that I have now. The older I get, the deeper my faith grows. Faith is really a journey of your soul and there are many different paths to it, but once you find it your inner light is turned on.
We are a materialistic culture so this is a crisis for us. We only trust what we can see or touch. Science tells us what is true or real. If we can’t see or touch it; we can’t prove it - so it’s not real.
But in our hearts we know there is more than just the material world. This is where the mystery comes in :: we know in it in our hearts - and it is unprovable. The degree of confidence we have in what we know in our heart is the measure of our faith.
Sometimes we may not have the complete confidence to trust our heart, so we act ‘as if’ we do. We imitate a person with complete faith, and in the process we hopefully find the faith we were seeking. This may be why some older people seem to have stronger faith - more time to live ‘as if’.
