Without Faith- then what do we have?

Without faith, what do we have? Without faith, then what is the point to living?

…Every one of us was put here for a reason…A reason to live. In those moments that we feel the smallest, we must remember that we have a purpose.

…What is your story ? What do you have to testify about your life so far?

In our own stories, we can find faith…

…in the darkness of the night, the earliest hours of the morning, we can find ourselves awake and feeling alone with our thoughts- wondering why are we here?…What is our purpose ? How much time do we have? …and the ultimate question: Is there life after death?….

And that is where our faith must walk in. We have faith that we will have eternal life. …because…without it- none of this makes sense…and not only do we have our faith and personal stories, we have John 3:16. (For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.).

…Faith has been the forefront that our ancient brothers and sisters searched and lived for- to them, we seek wisdom. For we can stand at the crossroads and look;ask for the ancient paths…(Jeremiah 6:16)

Your ancestors fought these same internal battles just as you have. We are all connected…but only separated by space and time.

…So in the darkness of the night, do not fret, do not worry your heart…Let your faith sing you a personal lullabye.

If you quiet your mind, your heart will tell you what you already know…(even if you might have forgotten). Your heart speaks to your soul…Faith is deep rooted inside of you…even when you thought you might have lost it…

Listen to the silence. Listen to your heart…call upon your soul…You’re still here. He’s listening…Always.

Faith will answer you…even in the lonely darkness of the night. It’ll light up your room.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
