How to Restore Your Faith


“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” – Mother Teresa

Sometimes when you are faced with difficult situations, you can lose your faith. It can feel like God is not listening or He simply doesn’t care. However, it’s important to remember that faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not yet seen.

It’s also important to realize there’s a power working on your behalf, even when you can’t see it. But when you learn to trust, despite your circumstances, you will see that your faith is still intact – you just have to hold on. You just have to make the choice to believe.


When you find yourself low on faith, here are five ways it can be restored.

Prayer is the key that unlocks the door. Give God some one-on-one time. Have faith in what you are praying about, and believe it will happen. Pray for your family, your community and for the world’s well-being.

Learn to be Grateful
Look around at the people in your community. Think how fortunate you are to have all the basic necessities such as food, shelter, money or a job. Homeless people do not have half of what you have. Learn to be appreciative of small blessings.

Talk to Someone Spiritual
Talking with someone who has been down the same road, can provide insight on your situation. They can help you rebuild your faith, by offering some practical advice.


Remember When
Think back to time when you were going through a tough situation. Ask yourself: How did I get out of that situation in one piece? You needed faith to come out and you used it, whether you acknowledge it or not.

Stronger Now
Look at the gifts you have. Every day is full of promise and hope. Have faith that all things are working together for your good. Believe in yourself, and know that you can do all things. And believe this: What doesn’t break you only makes you, and your faith, stronger.
