Where Faith Grows
A man told me love would last until death stole our breath.
We divorced; I lost faith in love.
My body failed to produce a child of my own.
I am infertile; I lost faith in family.
Terrorists flew planes into a building and thousands of lives were lost in one day.
In fear; I lost faith in man.
At each loss, I scream, “Why?!” I opened the Bible and found comfort…
Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, LORD, are good. PSALM 25:7
I have faith in unconditional love.
Sing barren woman, you who never bore a child, burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolte woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. ISAIAH 54:1-3
Be glad, barren woman, you who never bore a child; shout for joy and cry aloud, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband. GALATIONS 4:27
I have faith in family even if it does not come from my own DNA. The same message is given in the Old Testament and the New Testament…God is good.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. JOHN 3:16
I have faith in Jesus.
This is the role that faith played in my life. Faith continues to grow.
