Sometimes when all hope seems lost it is best to pretend that all hope is not lost. This is something else I know. Faith is a principle of action, a principle of power. That means that if you act like something is so then it can become so.
Let me show you an example.
Let's say you've been sleeping on an air mattress waiting for the delivery of a bed for three and a half months. (Hypothetically.)
Let's just say that you don't believe you will EVER sleep on a normal mattress again. Let's also say that you really, really, really hope that one day you will. What can you do in this situation? Do you have any control at all? Well, you musn't forget that faith is a principle of action.
So you should do something.
Like deflate the air mattress and put up the bed frame and the headboard you have painstakingly restored.
And just look what happens when you take a little leap of faith.
Forty pounds of handstitched natural cotton take their rightful place.
If you build it the aireloom will come.
And that, dear friends, is the substance of things hoped for.
*Please try using this principle in other scenarios. It really works.*
