A popular cartoon series a few years back featured a boy and a girl under the title "LOVE IS..." and then it would have underneath something witty like, "Giving her a single red rose for no reason." There were many versions of what Love Is. Like love, faith has many aspects to consider. The writer of Hebrews wrote that "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." We often struggle with our faith, to know what it is and trying to find ways of expressing it. To find faith is to struggle with life, its meaning, and our relationship with God.
Often our faith moments that should be high points disappoint us. We don’t live up to our own self-image, let alone meet what others want from us. Expectations and reality conflict.
