Firm in Faith

If you are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all.

Isaiah 7:9b

Resolute and in conviction

fortified with inner unction

not knowing what to do

but hoping something's true

trying to make sense of it all

but not firm in faith, not firm at all

Many things vie for allegiance

reason, science, philosophy, obedience

but all fall short of being the art

that understands and guides the heart

disappointed by the weight of the Fall

not firm in faith, not firm at all

but Spirit speaks in scripture's pages

hearing the call of ancient sages

understanding, believing the unseen

something happens... the heart believes

trusting something that breaks the wall

if there is no faith, you won't be firm at all

finding a story pointing to a deliverer

believing history brought a sin bearer

knowing a book tells the story line

believing it gives depth and joy divine

the good news makes sense of it all

now firm in faith, firm in it all
