Faith is not often characterized by this inexplicably exuberant 'feeling' - although many of us are beguiled to expect it to feel so.
But really, it is the conscious choice to cling on to God even when mere feelings have dissipated - leaving a raw desperation that actually draws us closer to Him, whom we realize is the only one who satisfies our mind and heart in a world where nothing else quite fills that bottomless void.
People may get all worked up about the stuff I write because they hate the thought of the implications of what I say if it is truly true. But as the song by Nico & Vince goes, 'Am I wrong? For thinking out of the box from where I stay?'
