Pushing Your Faith to the Limit

By Steve Wickham

FAITH IS THE STUFF OF THE IMPOSSIBLE. Whatever limits we've placed on ourselves are usually obliterated by faith. Faith sets sail from the coastland named "fear," nipping at the waves of courage--taking on its precious water as crucial ballast--as it goes. It takes on brightly the chiding joys of new frontiers.

With each temptation to say, "No," faith says an emphatic, "Yes!".

And with each frontier taken on and conquered this faith stretches us further in an interminable confidence that further casts into the unknown any notional boundaries or limits.

Pushing our faith is about identifying those boundaries, in wisdom, that we are destined to push past. We, by our very nature, severely underestimate our capacities as far as faith is concerned.

What is it in life that's currently holding you back?

You've been struggling long enough; finding the heart, the poise and 'the right time' to express that faith you have in you--if but a pipedream at this present stage. You've yet to take hold of this ground; the awesome promise that awaits. It's yours for the taking.

Wisdom is critical, however. The wisdom to plan, to anticipate problems, to execute the plan at the right time and in the right way; and it is wisdom finally to sustain the act of faith in realising the dream. In the language of faith, action is the insistent and resounding spoken word—it separates the doer from the dreamer.

Faith—or lack of it, more appropriately—is what stands between us and our goals; all of them.

Most people commonly don't think of the impossible being realistically possible, but many things are possible if we believe they are. And this is faith. To believe the urge that comes from within us, to give that urge a voice and its day of hearing, and to back the voice in, finding it expression without giving way to the apathy or mediocrity we're all tempted to buckle to.

Faith really is what life is all about. It is our task in life to engage with faith—for we all have it—and to then push it to a higher measure of its potential, ever after.
