How can we have Faith?

i've just come back from my church session..todays subject was about having faith... This was a really good evening for me...i asked myself lots of questions and i got alot out of todays talk... One of my favourite analogy was a child holding their fathers hand as they cross the road...putting their trust in their parent... the way you need to have faith in God and put your hand in his to guide you...

I remember alot of parts of this evening that made me feel at ease and sort of have some sort of clarity about 'faith'... They said you can't base your faith on your feelings..because feelings change everyday.. you could be happy in the morning, and feel like shit 5mins later...If you based it on your feelings alone..like you go church n feel good so u have faith in him..then wen ur day sucks later, you dont anymore..Faith in God is somefin else... He won't ever force his way into your life, the handle on the door is on your side, its up to you to open it if you want to let him in..

God's words and promises...
'I will come in'
'i am with you always'
'i give them eternal life'


In a Christians belief.. Faith is taking God's promises..and daring to believe them with deliberate confidence i think...
I think i want to invite God into my life... I mean what i learnt today is that God loves us regardless of our sins..the mere fact Jesus Died for us shows he can forgive us and wipe the slate clean.. I liked when the priest said ' being a Christian isn't about God creating all these rules for you... It's letting God have a relationship with you...' and i'm sure if you have and allow a relationship with God in your life...u'd kinda wanna be a better and more kinder, loving and awesome person...

I do think i have been basing my faith and trust on my feelings alone...and thats crazy coz its a battle to stick to them..my feelins change everyday.... i think if i can even begin to build strong faith that God is there and Jesus's legend was true...thats a steady beginning where maybe i can have faith and trust in other people in my life that i find difficult to do that with...
