There are some misconceptions about faith in God
and that we have it when things are all figured out.
Or that the children of God always know what he's doing
and they're courageous with no glimmer of doubt.
But the truth of the matter is really the opposite
for we live daily by faith through it all;
not knowing all His plans or purposes for everything
or the reasons when our plans might stall.
We have faith when God leads us through seasons of discouragement
that are longer than we ever dreamed.
We have faith when the 'victory' is snatched from our grip
when success was a sure thing, it seemed.
We have faith when God calls us to give unto others
when we're not rich, without extra to spend.
We have faith when the bills are stacked high in
the mailbox day after day . . . without end.
We have faith in when our health isn't very good at all
and doctors can only guess what to do.
We have faith when we're rejected for following Christ
and living for what's righteous and true.
We have faith when we raise a child with a disability
or our parents become feeble or ill.
We have faith when we pray . . . and God gives us the opposite
because He's holy and works through His will.
We have faith when God calls us to uncharted places
or to serve Him in sacrificial ways.
We have faith when life falls apart at the seams
and we weep through the sacrifice of praise.
We have faith through the many, clouded mysteries of life
because nothing is unknown from His sight.
He's the faithful, loving Father who never leaves his children
as He carries us from morning to night.
