Faith is like a certain provision we take along on our road of deeds.
Faith feeds our courage to step out.
Faith knows that raging waves submit under the Master’s feet,
and understands that rushing waters
part with a Word of Christ’s command.
Faith is not needed for that which we can do ourselves,
But for the impossible!
How would I know that you are my Light,
If I’d never seen darkness, but all had been bright?
How would I know that you are my peace,
If I’d never been scared, but all wars had ceased?
How would I know that you are my hope,
If I’d never despaired, and all gloom had eloped?
How would I know that you are my calm,
If I’d never felt strife, and my worries were gone?
How would I know to put faith in You
If I’d only been challenged with the things I could do?
