Faith

Me and Dem free-falling!

Sometimes it develops slowly
in hard times when
the Lord has seen us through
and evidence mounts
supporting a comfortable
quiet sinking into a faith that saves
a faith that sustains
as again and again
He is faithful

Other times it takes a leap

I almost missed the first Quadrille Monday of the year at dVerse Poets Pub, but I’m leaping in with all forty-four words just in time for the fun. Head on over and check out where and how the other poets are leaping today.

  1. Faith, grace comes to us in different ways, at different times. In a way it always demands a leap! I like what you did with this, Linda.

    That free falling picture makes me realize I probably wouldn’t be able to do that. Nice description of faith in your poem.
