    how do you keep you faith when bad things happen, or you feel depressed, how do you renew your faith?

    I just remember what my pop always said "the sun will come up in the morning".

    Isn't that why religion was invented in the first place?

    Thinking back on all the bullshit I've been through the past 40 years, my salvation has been renewing my faith in myself.

    The bad times are what I have my faith for. What you TRULY believe is what you believe when things go wrong. Just as a fair-weather friend isn't really a friend, a fair-weather faith isn't really what you have faith in at all.
