Student Voice: Living Faith by Alicia Cheshire

What is FAITH without awareness, confidence, trust, certainty and belief – a sense of knowingness, surety and peace?

It’s an empty shell yearning to be filled, a vessel waiting to carry you to the other side, to a brighter world where dreams are realised.

Faith is not denying reality  but facing it with certainty. Knowing that what ever you’re going through is just temporary.

Regardless of how things may appear, there’s nothing to fear.
YOU are in the drivers seat, just focus and steer.

Shift your attention from where you are to where you want to be. Feel it and see it internally.

And as you journey in that direction,  following the signs that have been purposely designed to guide you towards your destination.

There’s NO DOUBT in your mind that you’re getting closer, the road becomes clearer, the environment in line with your imagination.

You feel yourself relax as you allow things to unfold in a wonderful way.
Come what may, when you have faith, peace is here to stay.

There’s no panic or urgency, you’re enjoying the ride, taking things in your stride.

Excited by what’s to come,
Doubt and fear have been replaced by a sense of joy and fun.

So ultimately faith is about believing in YOU!

Leaving behind anything of hinderance in your rear view,
Trusting that what you focus on will eventually come true.

The timing depends on how quick you let go and let the universe carry you through!
