But I still grappled with the issue of proof. Prior to this epiphany, I was always a "show-me" kind of girl, and there was no way to see what I knew was true. I just knew it. So I decided to assume a few things and just go with it: Someone is in charge in this universe. That Someone is a positive force. Being in sync with that force and "going with the flow" makes my life better on a level that I can't explain logically. And I decided that was good enough. I don't understand how my car's engine works, but it takes me where I need to go. I think it's actually possible to use my mind and flex my faith muscles at the same time. I'll use all my senses as I go through life, but when I can't find my way, faith is what will take me home.
Faith vs. Reason
And yet, we're together.
I've been around the block, around the world.
Somehow, You're everywhere I go.
Make me mindful that life is not all or nothing.
Embolden me as I fail forward
Knowing that the only mistake would be not to try.
Inspire me to progress every single day.
Remind me not to take it personally
When I call and You don't pick up.
You gave me the gift of reason
Precisely so I would ask questions.
Be patient with me as I engage my senses
And still find the faith to follow my heart.
