Kwanzaa 2022 – Day 7

IMANI: Faith

To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

It all comes down to this one.

This day focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us to strive for a higher level of life for humankind by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph in righteous struggle.

That sounded good, didn’t it? That’s why I copied it from an image on my feed. People try so hard to complicate the issue of faith, but it is not that difficult to understand. Whoever wrote this line for “The Santa Clause” said it best:

“Seeing is not believing. Believing is seeing.”

It really is. I am a witness, especially this past year. I have been at a level of poverty that I had never experienced before, but instead of wasting time with worry and stress, I doubled down on my faith. God has never left me or forgotten me. No one can make me doubt him, no matter what my other senses say.

I believe. Therefore, I see.
