Having faith sometimes is like looking into the clouds and seeing nothing, and yet other times like seeing colors in the sky.
There are circumstances where we have lack of faith, and other times where our faith has saved us.
The important thing, I think, is to learn from each what either didn’t work or what did. So that we can do better tomorrow.
Our purpose on earth, to those of us who believe, is to bring hope to the poor in spirit, and thus foster our own poverty through living out our faith.
