“Faith is fluid and active, but it also demands monogamy. You don’t just stop living with faith the moment something doesn’t go your way. It isn’t a quick fix. Nor is it an antidote to pain, thought it helps to handle the discomfort when you believe the crap can morph into something meaningful. It is a bit easier to hold onto faith when we let go of expectation…When we load up our lives with the expectation that we should have all the answers, or that we are entitled to a life free of pain, or that everything should go our way, our faith becomes vulnerable. But when you are buoyed by faith, you’re able to step into the ick with the knowledge that all that is happening is propelling you to the place you need to go.”
