Faith (Lent #25)

I do not have faith in buildings.
I do not have faith in programs.
I do not have faith in landscaping.
I do not have faith in signs or banners or business cards.
I do not have faith in websites.
I do not have faith in institutions.
I do not have faith in myself.

Instead, I put my faith in the God who spoke the universe into creation.
I put my faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
I put my faith the God who made mountains and canyons and rivers and oceans (especially because of the oceans).
I put my faith in the God of love.
I put my faith in the God who became one of us to demonstrate that love.

Faith.  Belief.  Confidence.  Security.  Hope.  Life.

Faith.

It can be shaken. It wavers.  It can also be strengthened.  It can grow.  It can be shared.

When your faith is weak, can I share my faith with you?  When my faith grows dim, will you encourage me?

Life is better together,
Shawn
