Faith is not a thing which one ‘loses,’ we merely cease to shape our lives by it.
I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something Greater than You, and keep doing what you love. Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.
Faith means intense, usually confident, belief that is not based on evidence sufficient to command assent from every reasonable person.
I looked at some of the statues of Jesus they were just stones with no life. When they said that God is three, I was puzzled even more but could not argue. I believed it, simply because I had to have respect for the faith of my parents.
