We live by faith when we think that we will not make it.
We thrive by faith when we think that we are to big for ourselves
Or that we are doomed to fail.
We wish for faith when we think that we are sorely tested
And time after time,
Proof after proof,
Miracles on miracles,
We see the evidence of faith
And refuse to give in
Or to give up.
WHAT IS FAITH ALL ABOUT ANYWAY?
“Generally speaking, it is offered as a means by which the truth of the proposition, “things will turn out well in the end,” can be enjoyed in the present and secured in the future.
Consequently, religious faith appeals to “transcendent reality,” or that reality which is beyond the range of normal, physical human experience (e.g. the future).
1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another’s ability.
Let no conservative,
nor no fool
Become the final arbiter of our faith.
Let no manipulator
Nor hawker of religion
Steer our faith down paths of wrong.
Let no one else take over our faith
And things will turn out well in the end
To be enjoyed now
And to be secured in the future.
