Witnessing Strength Of Faith

I had the opportunity and to spend a bit of time with an incredible person these past two days. He’s someone who knows exactly where he is going and while he may not have all of the answers in front of him, even a blind person could see the abundance of faith he possesses.

For me, faith is a binary thing… either you have it or you don’t. It is there or it isn’t. And when I speak of faith I am not referring to it in the religious sense but rather a strong unwavering sense of self, sense of purpose, sense of direction, and dare I say… a sense of success. I have to tell you, sitting with this man these past two days and witnessing the strength of faith that he has is inspiring and even a bit mind-blowing.

Though I cannot personally visualize all that he has explained to me that is going to happen I have no other option than to believe everything he says will happen. When I say I cannot visualize it, what I mean is that I just can’t grasp the scale of things in which he is talking about. I get it… but at the same time, it is in a sense otherworldly to me.

On the surface, I could easily believe that he is delusional, or really has no clue whatsoever, but knowing his background and previous successes, it forces me to believe him.

My business was built on faith; I have had to have faith every single day for the past two years that everything I have worked for will work out in the end. Therefore, I understand his strong sense of conviction… to a point. What I have done and have created is nothing compared to what this man believes will happen, no matter what. But this guy is playing on another level altogether… I am talking about a strength of faith that to be honest, makes me uncomfortable and even scares me to a point; Which is awesome!

It is awesome because it is forcing me out of my comfort zone and making me reexamine my own beliefs. It is forcing me to step up my own game and to dream/scheme/plan bigger myself. It is forcing me to work on my own strength of faith in order to keep up.

It’s been an interesting couple of days for me to say the least and I now have many things to ponder myself.

What about you, do you consider yourself a person of strong faith? Have you ever met someone with such a strong strength of faith that it is almost incomprehensible? Or maybe your strength of faith is already there?
