Faith is the foundation of everything. It’s the foundation of intention, time, and opportunity.

The online dictionary defines faith as, (1) complete trust or confidence in someone or something and (2) strong belief in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual conviction rather than proof.

In the book of Hebrews, the Bible defines faith as ‘…the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.’ Hebrews 11:1.

Faith is a child-like trust in the unknown. It’s living your life like an infant, trusting and expecting good things to happen.

I have a couple of nieces – a new niece was added to the family recently, her name is Jasper, she is about three or four months old. I was looking at her picture, she looks pretty, wide-eyed, with a beautiful dimpled smile that lights up her face.

As I looked at her picture, I admired her wide-eyed wonder look – the look of innocence that’s just loving life.

I have a couple other nieces, there is Riley – Riley has gone from being a toddler to talking and walking around, then there is Mina – Mina is all grown up now. At three years old she is talking and chatting everyone up.

Just thinking about them melted my heart. They are so innocent and trusting, so full of faith. They don’t worry about anything and have this absolute faith that life will be great.

That’s how all infants are, full of faith,  trusting, never worrying, just being babies.

That’s the kind of faith we should have, but how do we get back to that state of infant faith as grown-ups? How do we exercise infant-like trust in our 20s, 50s, or 70s?
