Somethingism

Do you believe in ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐ ?
Our beliefs define who we are and what we do.
Belief โ€“ โ€œthe feeling of being certain that something exists or is trueโ€
Somethingism โ€“ โ€œan unspecified belief in some higher forceโ€
Iโ€™ve met so many people here who believe in something, but theyโ€™re not sure what that something is.
When you believe in something – when you believe it to your very core – your genuine actions speak for you.
Action starts with one critical element: ๐‘ฉ๐’†๐’๐’Š๐’†๐’‡!
Your actions will speak louder than words when you stand strong in your beliefs.
When you live by what you believe in, you not only make a difference to yourself, but also your family, your friends and your community.

Belief is the result of experience.

Beliefs can bring us together or even tear us apart.
Belief is a way of understanding and discovering ourselves and the world around us, both things seen and also unseen.
We all believe in things we canโ€™t see, because frankly itโ€™s not possible to see everything. For example…
– Do you believe in love?
– Do you believe in mercy?
– Do you believe in kindness?
– Do you believe in hope?
– Do you believe in justice?
All of these things we canโ€™t see, but we know exist.
When it comes to spiritual things, I believe the answers are much the same.
Hebrews 11:1 states, โ€œNow faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.โ€
Believing is part of life.
When it comes to matters of faith, I have confidence in my experience of reality.
I experience the fruits of my faith, every day.
The deepest things in life are not seen but felt.ย  They bring joy.
When those deepest things get into our hearts, our very natures are changed.
And so it is with our beliefs.

I believe in something.

That something is a someone.
He is Jesus Christ.
In your pursuit of something, I know that the most important something you can learn, comes from the Lord Jesus Christ.
I invite you to come to know Him and love Him as I do.
As He said to the ruler of the synagogue in Mark 5:36 โ€œโ€ฆBe not afraid, only believe.โ€
Consider this invitation from The Book of Mormon.
…in Alma 32:27 โ€œBut behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my wordsโ€
