Build a bridge

Mark 9:24 “Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief!”*



The mind is limited

and heart hangs

on banks of disbelief.


So build a bridge

 to the other side

where faith resides complete.

The father knew Jesus could heal his son. At least…he thought he believed. In desperation he pleaded for Jesus to make up the difference. Smart father.
