Keep the Faith

If a blade of grass can grow in a concrete walk and a fir tree in the side of a mountain cliff, a human being empowered with an invincible faith can survive all odds the world can throw against his tortured soul.  Robert Schuller

I think this is a very nice quote about the power of faith, in the highest expression of itself.

It must really be something to have that kind of faith, the kind that can move mountains, with a big huge choir singing in the background.

My faith is not invincible.

There are moments when my faith is fragile and delicate and fleeting, like a hummingbird.

This though, for me, is the real beauty of faith.

It does not have to be invincible to survive the odds.

Faith is so powerful, that even faith hanging on by a thread, is enough.

Every day I walk a neighborhood I've lived in twenty years,

with these new eyes
and this new heart
carried on these tired heavy feet.

Everywhere
every day
I see the signs meant for me.

Keep the faith.

God is near.
