Faith is never static. Either we are moving closer to God or away from God. Deep within our core is the desire to be one with our Creator. However, there will arise roadblocks that hinder our progress. We can give up, and go through life trying to fill that desire with other things that never truly fill that desire. Or, we can say, “I am not giving up,” and overcome the obstacle. The challenge can be trying, but in the end it will make us stronger in our faith. With God we can overcome anything.
