The walk of faith is just that, it's putting faith in God and his word in an existence in which we can't see the answer coming, or the outcome. We can only trust and seek to follow. Faith is never only an intellectual assent to God's word, but an assent of our whole person. It involves our will as well; we must choose to follow.
This means we must plod along and seek to get to know the God in Jesus we put our faith in. That Jesus is indeed Emmanuel: "God with us" by the Spirit. And he will be with us to the end. The Lord is our Shepherd.
As I was reminded recently, it's not important how much faith we have. The one with weak faith who jumps will be just as supported in the end as the one with stronger faith. The point is that we must jump, or more characteristically as far as how Scripture describes it, we must continue along in this walk. Only as we walk by faith will our faith be real.
I find this so in my own life. Nothing spectacular. Just keep seeking to follow the Lord, to walk by faith in God's word and by the Spirit. To grow in that. To ignore emotions contrary to that is important for me. Or thoughts that are contrary, as well.
Don't give up. Just keep on walking in faith. God in Jesus will help us through. To his glory and for the good of others.
