Religions are dying all over the world. The reason for this is a lack of faith and a lack of trust. People always have to have an explanation for why everything is the way it is. Whatever happened to the blind faith that we see in the Bible?
One example of this is the story of Joseph. Joseph found out that his betrothed, Mary, was pregnant before their marriage and was quite torn about what he should do. However, when the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and told him that Mary conceived through the Holy Spirit he listened and believed.
This simple little story really is a testament to what we need to believe in as well. We need to have the faith to believe when we do not understand completely. The reason for this blind faith is because God does not mean us to know everything. His job is to know the outcome of our lives and our faith proves that we trust Him even when the road ahead is dark.
The reason why I am writing about faith is because I firmly believe that it is an important virtue that many people today fail to care about. People are so concerned about understanding everything, that they do not realize the importance of trusting in God. It is ever so important when something happens that you do not understand, to just say Well that’s what God wants. Leaving your life and your everyday plans in the hands of God shows to him that you trust and love Him. Lastly, of all the stresses we have in our lives, just think of how much of that is relieved when we leave everything in God’s hands.
Have faith in what we cannot understand and put aside all doubts because God is for ever faithful to you if you are to Him.

I get what you are trying to say, but some of your language is rather unsavory.
The idea of “blind” faith is a misconception. I am not blind in my faith, because i can feel god's presence within me, guiding me and helping me along my way.
Not all my friend you just misunderstood my meaning of blind faith. What I meant in regards to blind faith, was merely, we are blind in understanding so we follow knowing that He is right in what He does. Furthermore God most definitely guides and helps us in our everyday actions but he does not make us understand certain things that is why I said blind faith. We have blind faith that there is Heaven and eternal life. Do we not? Because here on Earth we are consumed by the ever presence of time we have no way of understanding the concept of eternity. So we blindly without full knowledge have faith in God and have faith in things we do not fully comprehend. Hopefully this explains the reason why I used those words.
