What is faith in God to me? Simply life itself. I wonder if I can word it more clearly. To trust in God, to trust God is more than words for me. This is the way I live. It's not easy to explain it, I suppose. I am living all by myself. Friends do come to visit me but there is no one to be around permanently. Somehow I get all I need to survive. Who knows how this is arranged ... I guess, I know, though, and do not take it for granted. I believe in God. I believe Him, believe in what He says.

Perhaps all this sounds like heard-all-this-before to many but there doesn't seem to be any other way I can put it. This is just the way I live. Hopefully, you will get a clearer idea of it after browsing my other pages (if you feel like doing so).

One more thought before I close. My beliefs have nothing to do with the Russian Orthodox faith, or, rather, Orthodox religion. In fact, I have a different regard for faith than for religion. As a rule, these notions aren't synonymous.


Matthew 6

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
