On Faith


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
           ~~~~~~~~~~~
You go to bed assured that you will wake;
A pregnant woman knows her child will come;
You drool just thinking of that chocolate cake;
Guitarists play the song before they strum.
Now, faith is not believing it will be,
It's knowing that it is before it is.
I do not have to touch, don't have to see
To know that Jesus lives; my heart is His.
It was by faith Christ calmed the tempest sea,
By faith He made the blind man see anew.
Within the grace of God you'll find the key:
You live by faith in everything you do.
           In faith you have the truth to set you free.
           The tiny seed contains the mighty tree.
           ~~~~~~~~~~~


REMEMBER: Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation. (D. Elton Trueblood)
