Faith It Til You Make It: Powerful Steps For Personal Growth

1:49 AM

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. -Corrie ten Boom

"Faith it 'til you make it," is a line from Joel Osteen that has become a personal favorite.

It encourages us to develop a strong and unshakeable belief in ourselves, even when faced with doubts.

This unwavering belief acts as fuel, propelling us forward even when we can't quite see the finish line.

Take action with faith

  • Job Interview Jitters? Feeling under-qualified is common. Instead, focus on your strengths and experiences. Research and practice. Visualize yourself confidently presenting your skills. Faith is believing you're equipped even when you can't see it happening yet.
  • Dream Chasing Doubts? Don't let negativity dim your light. Your naysayers simply can't comprehend the incredible things God has planned for your journey.
  • Love Life Struggles? Dating can be tricky, but don't let past heartbreaks define your future. Trust that God has someone amazing in store for you. Relax and have faith that the right person will come along. While waiting, work on yourself. Build the future you want, so when someone comes, it's just a bonus.

Move Forward with Faith

Fear of the unknown

It's natural to feel apprehensive about the future

But one thing is certain:

Whatever the future holds, God is already there.

Take a deep breath, release your anxieties, and believe He's working behind the scenes, even when you can't see it.

Heal from Hurt

Maybe a parent, an elder, a teacher, or a mentor made you feel incapable or planted the seed of doubt in your heart.

Past experiences can leave emotional scars. 

It can make you doubt your capabilities and worth.

But with faith, you can rise above them. 

Take that first step, believing in your strength and resilience.

Faith it til you make it

Faith is a powerful tool for navigating life's uncertainties. So when doubt starts rearing its ugly head, choose to move forward and have faith in yourself. You'll make it.

How has faith helped you grow?

Wait! I've got more stories for you...
