Knowing vs Believing

Many people are running off of hope and not faith. It does not matter what you have hope in or what you have faith in (I’m not here to decide or judge what your religious or spiritual system should be — or lack thereof). But the difference between having hope and faith is simple: Hope is believing. Faith is knowing. Being hopeful is being uncertain, being faithful is a decision.

Knowing holds much more weight and energy/power than a belief. Knowing does not mean that what you know cannot be changed or adapted. Knowing requires research and experimentation. But a belief is something that can be equated to anything taught/learned without question, research, or first person experience/exposure.

Do not be afraid to question or test out your beliefs, yet remain open enough to receive the solutions and results. Do turn your beliefs into knowing and realize that there will be a shift in your life.

Keep faith alive.
