F
aith is risking what is
for what is yet to be.
It is taking small steps
knowing they lead to bigger ones.
Faith is holding on when you want to let go.
It is letting go when you want to hold on.
Faith is hearing God’s yes
when everything else says no.
It is believing all things are possible
in the midst of impossibilities.
Faith is looking beyond what is
for what is yet to be.
It is seeing the Light in darkness,
the presence of God in all.

  2. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" Hebrews 11:1
    God will provide; He is good ALL the time. :)

  12. Love this. Needing a little faith this morning. My little boy will have surgery next Thursday, the 25th, and I'm a nervous wreck. I'm trying to focus on GOD BEING IN CONTROL and not me being in control. Beautiful quote- and SO SO TRUE!
