Faith? A gift from God?

Faith, she thought, was not a spiritual thing.
Faith, she thought, was a respite from fear and worry.

Faith, she thought, was natural – obvious.

Faith the car will start. Faith the sun will rise.
Faith the flip of a switch will remove the dark.

Faith that God does exists.

She had faith. She couldn’t recall a day she didn’t have faith.

What’s this she heard – faith is a gift from God?

Faith wasn’t a ‘God’ thing; it was a ‘gut’ thing.
Believing in God was a no-brainer for her.

Was there something more to faith?

  1. I have always like this thought on the subject of faith:

    When you walk to the edge of all the light you have
    and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,
    you must believe that one of two things will happen:
    There will be something solid for you to stand upon,
    or, you will be taught how to fly. — (Patrick Overton
    The Leaning Tree)

    1. Faith comes from deep within your love for Jesus Christ.. Being sick and having faith that God will hear your prayers, therefor He will heal me of my illness. Without faith, what you do is just a mere way of living without the joy of God in your life.

      1. True, true, Libby. Faith has always been easy for me. I never really equated it as a gift from God. During an Ephesians bible study, we had a discussion about faith, and this drabble popped into my mind.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
