Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.
Coming to my first meeting was an act of faith. I had no idea how it could help, but everything else I had tried was not working. I felt better at the end of the meeting. I did not know why. I could not explain it. But I continued to have faith in the process, I followed the steps, did what I heard from others, just took it on faith. And I got better. The situation that brought me to my knees did not get better right away, but I did.
