Day 16: Elephant Faith


I wish I could SEE IT.

But if I could SEE IT would it be FAITH?

"Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for

(divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen

[the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact

what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]" (Hebrews 11:1)

Therefore,

If "faith is being sure of what we hope for

and certain of what we do not see"~

Why do I spend so much time,

with my eyes focused on 'lil ole me?

Which then fills me with uncertainty,

stealing away any hope~

Then "Me, Myself and I"

find it impossible to cope.

"We" get all anxious and fearful,

running aimlessly in despair~

Seeking out anyone or anything,

to show that they do care.

Then GOD graciously reminds me,

that HE holds me in His palms~

All HE asks is to believe by faith,

so HE infuses me with His calm.

How quickly I get sidetracked,

forgetting HE hasn't left my side~

It is me who usually moves,

In HIM I am to abide.

To fix my eyes on the invisible,

as I go about my day~

Fills me with HIS Hope and HIS Peace,

then I'm joyfully on my way.

I can accomplish all things through HIM,

who infuses me with strength~

HIS love covering this heart of mine,

because HE went to such great lengths.

HE sent HIS Son to earth,

one glorious silent night~

Wrapped up in swaddling cloths,

this Babe came to make things right.

Knowing that my future is secure,

in HIS gift of eternal life~

Believing this truth by faith,

removes any strife.

So thank YOU GOD for this reminder,

YOU Penned in Hebrews 11:1~

Of the assurance of my Hope,

that is wrapped in YOUR BEGOTTEN SON!

FIRST THINGS FIRST~

"Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for

(divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen

[the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact

what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]" (Hebrews 11:1)

Therefore

"STAND IN FAITH"
