Conflict in faith

Faith is confidence or trust in a person or entity, according to Wikipedia. I have grown up in a Pentecostal home, so the idea of faith in God came easy to me.

In school, I enjoyed mathematics and sciences.  Faith in logic and reason came easy to me.

It never dawned on me that the two faiths could live together.  I can’t pinpoint the time that I started to merge the two faiths I had into one faith.

It might have been in bible college when I studied Apologetics. I learned that 1+1+1=1. Wrap your head around that.

It might have been during the development of my friendship with an atheist. This is one moment in my life that I look to as being essential to an authentic faith, one that is not separated into different spheres and circles.

I’ve considered the idea that faith in the teaching of Jesus could be misplaced, but it is a chance I have decided to be worth taking. I want to live my faith in action, merging the faith of my childhood with the faith of my adulthood.

In letting faith choose me for One Word 365 and change me as I blog and contemplate on my journey, I expect the year ahead to be a phenomenal year.

I hope to get to know my fellow one-worders, starting with Kalisis Rising (opportunities) and Jason (more). These individuals are my immediate linkmates on the Community page at One Word 365. thank you, Alece for choosing to keep the community growing. You see that, Alece. I used your word.
