There is a story. It’s source lost in time. It goes like this.
One day all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the people gathered, however only one boy came with an umbrella. He had faith.
Now we can’t all be like that boy. Sometimes situations make us doubt. We doubt that we are worthy. We doubt that prayer will even work for us. We are like the villagers. Sometimes we just go through the motions and wait to see what happens.
Sometimes you have to fake it. Do and be as if you have unfaltering faith.
When you least expect it, somewhere along the way magic happens and you realize faith is really not elusive.
You just have to let go of the B.S. and take your umbrella.
