Keep the Faith

keep the faith

Always keep the faith

We hear these words all the time.  In church, through songs, or from people who care about us.  But do we really apply these words in our daily lives?  I do and let me tell you how and why.

A few years ago, my daughter Kylie was diagnosed with a rare condition called HSP (Henoch Schonlein Purpura) which gave her severe abdominal pain and at one point, disabled her from standing or walking because of leg pain.  It was a difficult time for me and my wife seeing our daughter suffering, grimacing in pain, and vomiting.

We were told by her doctor that the condition can be lethal if not closely monitored because there are some cases so severe, internal bleeding follows which would require blood transfusion or worse, major surgery.  We were both scared but there never was a time that we ever lost faith.  We both agreed that this is a trial we had to go through.

Kylie has since recovered from her condition and has come out very healthy.  She doesn’t get sick too often anymore and if she does, she would only get small fever, coughs and colds, but nothing as threatening as HSP.

I’ve always believed that God has a purpose in everything he makes us go through.  Sometimes he gives us everything we ask of him but sometimes, he may also let us go through difficult situations to test our faith.  What’s important is how we will rise from these setbacks and come out a victor.

I also believe that after these trials, something good awaits us.  And that’s what faith is all about.  Faith is believing in God even if what’s happening to us doesn’t make sense.  Believing in Him even when you can’t find an explanation why you had to go through the most difficult of situations.

In the case of our daughter, she’s been at her healthiest after her episode with HSP.  She’s a bright and happy child.  She does well in school and she’s enjoying life to the fullest.

So whatever it is you’re going through, be it financial problems, marital issues or employment woes, don’t you worry.  Something good and big awaits you.  You just have to be patient and always keep the faith.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
