Several people have told me that they could not have gone through the things that I've been through. Without my faith and belief in God I would not have been able to do either. What is FAITH? Hebrew 11:1. Faith is the substance of things hope for, for the evidence of things not seen. In my own words, Faith is knowing that something is going to happen no matter what you are told or you may or may not see. You might not be sure when or where it will happen, but you know that it will happen sometime in the future.
