#ADVENT – Faith (having lots of)

On this second day of Advent, contemplating faith as a verb…

“Sorrow looks back. Worry looks forward. Faith looks up.” Anonymous

“Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the Light.”  Helen Keller

grace, peace & faith

    Faith as a verb, I like this.

  3. Faith…substance of things hoped for…evidence of things not seen. Faith truly is looking up when it may seem like there’s nothing to look up to.

      Hey Sunshine, I see you are a Hebrews 11 groupie, too. (We had to memorize it in school many, many moons ago, but it has stayed with me all these years, so I am grateful.) Faith looks UP, but ‘taint always easy as you’ve said. Think of the roster of faith in Hebrews 11 – Abraham, Sarah, Enoch, Noah, Joseph, Moses, et all – who weathered TOUGH times by faith. I think courage is part & parcel of faith – because we need lots of it to look up when what’s down is making us drown. Much love & faith Up-Look grooves – VA 🙂
