Faith takes wing

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

…..

Faith takes wing

and flaps to the sky,

not knowing the how—

but trusting he will—

come through.

…..

Faith is flying on air

I cannot see.

…..

Believing God can do something is only half the equation. He calls me to put feet to my faith, or, take wings to the sky. I play an active role in his response to my prayers.

Faith is action. Doing. Moving forward. Faith is not sitting around and waiting—unless that’s what he said to do.

Faith is pushing past worry and fear. Past the past and into the future. Faith is marching around a city for seven days; it’s leaving Egypt and crossing the sea as on dry land. Faith is flapping wings and flying into air that can’t be seen.

And when you’re a writer…faith is pressing “send”.
