Introduction: There comes a point in life everyone faces a void in their faith(Matt. 5:45); yes, whether, you are saved
or unsaved(Rom. 12:3). Faith is the power to believe. Knowledge and our five senses may be the structure of life; but the
foundation of life are faith and values(John 15:5;Heb.11:6;Phil 4:8). The Late Thomas Edison(American Inventor)believed
in faith being progress and industry and valued tenacity and hard work .

Conclusion: The word empty when rearranging the letters almost has the word tempt. If you are one who can be easily tempted;
you have faith problems and anger management issues, which comes down to lack of patience and self control(1 Cor. 9:25) .When
the issue of patience which is ability to wait in the wisdom of God(Matt. 10:19;Eccl. 3:1;Eccl. 9:11). Eph. 5:18 and Gal.
5:1,16,22;John 15:1-5)are the keys to avoiding the life of nothiness, emptiness and vanity. The are five senses(Sight, hearing,
touch, taste, smell), but the sixth sense is faith(11 Cor. 5:7;Heb. 5:14).
