“Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods.” -- C.S. Lewis
This teaching of Lewis's hooked into my theological fascination when I first read of it; later on, it would anchor me.
During a particularly stormy time of my life, I couldn't feel God's existence or summon the comfort I had always found so easily before in my One True Faith. But I could remember this: that once, in a time when I was at peace and full of clarity, I knew, without a blemish of doubt, that God was real. And I could hold onto that, as a sailor lost at sea sets his eyes to the northern star. Land does exist--at one time he felt it, walked upon it--and as long as he continues to follow it, it will lead him home.
