a tickle of words to create smiles

Faith and Love

Faith makes all things possible… love makes all things easy.
Dwight L. Moody

All we need is faith and love to fuel our hearts. The hardest part is having faith in ourselves and loving ourselves. It is often easier to love and have faith in others. Why is that? Is it a feeling of unworthiness? Is it fear that we will disappoint ourselves?

How can we love others and have faith in others if we do not have love and faith in ourselves? How do we start? Love and faith in ourselves starts with gratitude and counting blessings. It is reflecting upon who we are and cherishing everything about ourselves, how we live, how we interact, who we are and what we have accomplished.

It is also not discounting anything. Smiling at strangers, saying hello, complimenting others, acting in compassion and with kindness, holding one’s intentions, saying prayers for others and sending good wishes and blessings are all seemingly small acts but add up to be something quite amazing. For we do not know how much of an effect a smile or hello may have on the hearts of others.  

One of the best and most loving actions we can do is listen. Listen with all your heart to what others have to say. When you are completely present for someone, it feels amazing for both the giver and the recipient. How do you feel when you know others are completely present for you? When you know you are being heard and valued, how do you feel? How does it feel to have someone’s faith and trust? It feels wonderful! All we need is faith and love.
